Did anyone make gnash thread safe in the meanwhile?
Anyone interested in doing that?

The url in the original submission crashes the proprietary player here, FWIW

The only reason the plugin uses fork and exec was because Gnash was not thread safe. Once Gnash is thread safe, it can then work in the more traditional plugin style.

The embed script sends over 3000 lines of XML as a parameter to Gnash. If that's expected, this is just another limitation of fork and exec because we need the shell to pass arguments.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Go to "http://gs.statcounter.com/#os-FI-daily-20080701-20091221" with gnash 0.8.6-2 from debian unstable

Expected results:
1) flash program is run

Actual results:
1) nothing visible happens and only

executing standalone gnash: Argument list too long

is printed to stdout/stderr.
