Nspluginwrapper is installed by default even on 32-bit systems to force plugins to run as a separate process increasing stability and security of the system and has been working fine on my systems. There has been a few bugs reported and fixed over a period of time about instability with the flash plugin when using nspluginwrapper. If you can reproduce them, it would be useful to report them. They are typically handled quickly.
