Bug Description

Binary package hint: akregator

Version: 1.6.6 (using KDE 4.6.4)
OS: Linux

If you load a feed, and the articles that the feed points to on the web contain
flash content, the plugin, nspluginviewer, that Akregator uses to display that
flash content crashes every time it tries to display the content.

For example most all of the articles on this feed have flash content that
crashes the plugin:

Also of note is that it does not crash immediately if the flash content is not
initially visible in the display window. It only crashes when you scroll down
and make the flash content visible.

I have the flash plugin from Adobe installed, perhaps there should be a way to
choose to use it rather than this one that is crashing?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Open Akregator
Load this feed:
Follow one of the articles to the website using the link in the feed article.
If the flash content is not visible, scroll down the page, when it is visible
the plugin will crash.

Actual Results:
Segmentation fault every time

Expected Results:
Properly displayed flash content

Here is the output of the backtrace:

Application: nspluginviewer (nspluginviewer), signal: Segmentation fault
