           Summary: Flash crashes the browser when stopped during sound
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 523.x (Safari 3)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Plug-ins
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: ishtov at yahoo.com

If the page is stopped (reloaded, closed, or otherwise interrupted) while
loading a sound into the buffer of a flash sound object, the browser will crash
and close ("Safari has encoutered a problem and must close")

If the song has completed buffering, it will not crash the browser, even if it
is still playing.

This has only been tested on movies compiled with Flash9, written in AS3, but
it has been tested consistantly on two computers.

All but a few of the songs it has been tested with had been resampled at 48khz
instead of 44.1

This may affect thousands of sites that play sound through flash.  If a user
hits the back button or reloads without knowing to wait for the sound to
buffer.  This behaviour is not found on IE6/7, FF.
