mozilla-plugin-gnash-0.8.6-alt2

In seamonkey-1.1.18-alt2 run through "ssh -X -Y" (over a wireless network), I
open, for example, the URL http://www.intuit.ru/department/os/osunix/ and the
network gets stuffed (all SSH connections almost hang). This is obviously
because of the traffic generated by gnash showing the moving pictures from the
ads.

(AFAIR, mozilla-plugin-adobe-flash used not to work that bad.)

One quick workaround would be to simply switch off flash in the browser:

$ tail /etc/gnashpluginrc 
#
###########################################################

# Start the gui in STOP mode
#
# This is a commonly wanted feature for plugin  runs.
#
# Default: off
#
set startStopped on
$ 

Perhaps, the following setting also could do something with the non-optimal
usage of the X protocol by gnash -- an excerpt from /etc/gnashrc:

# Enable support for the X Video extension. Note that this requires a
# kernel/X11 driver, and compile-time gstreamer or ffmpeg and libXv.
#
# Default: false
#
#set XVideo true

The running gnash processes:
