When gnash hangs I can no longer access the context menu.

I attached strace to the running gnash process and the output is repeated gettimeofday():

gettimeofday({1230349775, 990767}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1230349775, 990862}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1230349775, 990958}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1230349775, 991052}, NULL) = 0
gettimeofday({1230349775, 991147}, NULL) = 0

When seeking through the video at <http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6642148224800885420&hl=en> using the slider Gnash sometimes hangs, usually when repeatedly seeking before playback is buffered.

To reproduce (not 100% reliable):

1. Go to: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6642148224800885420&hl=en
2. Use the slider to seek through the video, small steps at a time. Do this repeatedly, and don’t wait for playback to restart before continuing, until the gnash interface disappears.

I’d expect playback to resume from the last seek.

Instead the gnash display disappears (replaced by grey background, the same as if Quit Gnash is selected from the context menu). There is a gnash process still running, however.
