flashsupport is an external system. If your system has a
libflashsupport.so file it will be loaded into the flashplayer. We used
to use this some time ago when Flash's audio support was shocking
(libflashsupport.so was used to provide pulseaudio support). Now flash
works OK with alsa and PA via alsa, we no longer need this. Just wanted
to ensure you weren't generating some odd code paths as a result of this
file being present. It seems you are not and thus, I don't think
flashsupport is an issue (tho as the internals of Flash are a black box
I can't be 100% certain).
