When focusing (clicking) a FLASH OBJECT (youtube player play button demonstrates this) the F11 key stops working to set full-screen (even with no listeners dedicated to this key in flash)

When in a site with no-scale flash object set (http://www.paim.com.br) this causes main problems:

- The only way to exit FScreen is to open a new tab (with no flash focused) to regain F11 key control. If a dummie user does not know how to do this, he will have to ctrl-alt-del, maybe will even reset the computer.
- The tabs bar does not hides itself after hitted.

Other problems within Full Screen and Flash: the cache constructed by a session in the site within a while in full screen turn impossible to finish to download a new session of the same content after closing the first (www.uniqlo.jp/uniqclok)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to http://www.youtube.com and select any movie page to open a player (ex: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bqf9gbuSc_E)
2. hit play button on youtube player (set focus to the flash object)

3. go to http://www.paim.com.br or http://www.uniqlo.jp/uniqlock
4. enter full screen (if the stage area has been clicked F11 is already disabled).
5. mouse over the tabs bar

-> happens in large sites with streaming
6. wait some minutes on the site in full screen mode.
7. close the browser.
8. reopen and access the same site (http://www.uniqlo.jp/uniqlock)

Actual Results:  
1-2. The F11 key does not map the Full Screen state change function.
3-5. The tab bar does not hides itself. The F11 key does not exits the full screen mode if the page was hitted.
6-8. The site loading will not finish.

Expected Results:  
1. The F11 key working to change screen states.
2. The tabs bar working on hidding and showing itself
3. The content finishing download

This bugs was tested with ADOBE FLASH 9
No theme used (windows 98 theme)
paim.com.br no repsonse

can you reproduce this using FF 3.5 and flash v10?
Note: I think eating of some keystrokes when flash is focused is normal behavior
