I'm also sticking with 8.04 for much the same reasons. I discovered
that somehow I had /swfdec/ (6.0.9) installed, and that it was stomping
all over /flash-plugin-nonfree/ (10.0.3.15) -- couldn't install,
uninstall or change flash until after I dumped swfdec. Then, however,
flash restored to normal operation. Go figure, huh?
