Good point, unless it's Firefox keeping a plug-in active when it
shouldn't.  But I think you're right, it's probably more likely that the
plug-in is hogging the sound system to itself.

I'll have to try that later.  I'm on the wrong PC, and I don't often go
to Flash sites, so I don't know of one to test it with, off hand.
