nspluginwrapper (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This only applies to 64-bit Ubuntu, when nspluginwrapper is used to run 32-bit Flash.
Start Firefox from the terminal. Watch a video on Youtube. "killall firefox" while the video is playing. npviewer.bin will start printing errors, without ever exiting:

*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: NPN_InvalidateRect() invoke: Connection closed
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: NPN_InvalidateRect() invoke: Connection closed
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: NPN_InvalidateRect() invoke: Connection closed
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: NPN_InvalidateRect() invoke: Connection closed
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: NPN_InvalidateRect() invoke: Connection closed

It's even better: the plugin keeps running, playing music, and so on!
