Latest Xorg update makes flash plugin in Firefox really unhappy

After updating Rawhide a few minutes ago Firefox now crashes on pages 
containing flash applets with the following message:

Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'Gecko' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
   (Details: serial 120 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3)
   (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

After running "firefox -g" and issuing "run --sync -P test" I get the 
following backtrace.
