Is there a public (non-FB) site to reproduce this on? The only FB flash app I have access to is farmville, and that appears to work correctly.

Resolving this as WORKSFORME.  Something must have been changed on the Facebook side of things to fix this.  All of the Applications that would only work with ipc disabled yesterday and earlier today seem to work just fine now.  Same build, same laptop, same facebook username, same everything.  So the problem has just mysteriously vanished.
