64bit flash glibc memcpy and stuttering playback

I am now getting a very stuttering playback of youtube videos with Adobe
flash on 64 bit Suse 12.1 and I understand that it is a combination of
changes to glibc with regard to memcpy and the way that the odd Adobe
use overlapping buffers with memcpy in their flash implementation that
causes this. I understand that some other distributions distribute an
.so file that can be used with LD_PRELOAD to provide a more conventional
version of memcpy that does not suffer with this issue.

Any chance of sorting this for users of Suse. I do realise that many
videos on Youtube do render perfectly well with Gnash but some of the
things like TV series insist on Adobe Flash.

The recent flash update is buggy and many have rolled back to the
previous flash 11.1
or
Disabled Hardware Acceleration in the flash settings

Although you are raising a issue which is a little different to those
affecting most of us

I may be being naive but I suspected it related to this
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638477#c31 but perhaps that
is long under the bridge.

I'd just be glad to see the back of flash altogether.

You didn't report as to the current version of flash you are using (in
connection with the comments I made)

I was using the 11.2.202.228-12.1 I have now found and gone back to
11.1.102.62-7.1 and it now works. With regard to Flash, I am just
pleased not to be developing in it, what a horrid IDE.
