Well, I've no idea what Ken uses (and his problem is pretty different than 
mine), but I did mention I was using Jaunty specifically.  It still works 
fine on Hardy (whose Flash is 9.0) and OK on Intrepid, both of which 
default to earlier versions of Xorg -- as appears to be the case with Lenny 
since Debian stable goes into feature freeze about what, 6 or 7 years 
before each release?  So in a couple of years you may run into this 
problem, in Rocky or Scud or whatever they name it by then.

What doesn't work fine on Hardy is LMMS 0.4.4, which wouldn't even build 
unless I installed a lot of newer versions of packages that would undermine 
the stability which would be my entire reason for running a long-term 
release.  Intrepid's shelf life is already running out unless I spend more 
time backporting packages than I have available, so I'm stuck running 
newer, unstable distros for a while.
