This actually still occurs on 1.9. Specifically, I can reproduce this on
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008041004

I'm using Flash 9.0 r115.

Same thing here.
Firefox 3.0.10 (Windows XP)
Flash plugin 10.0. r22

This occurs with other sites too
can you still reproduce?
I was not able to
