I'm not going to get into the comments on the bug but here are some
possible solutions..

If you are using all 64bit plugins there is really no need to have
nspluginwrapper. Firefox 3.6.4 has plugin crash protection now so that
removes one of the needs for 64bit pluginwrapper on a 64bit browser. If
you desire to have nspluginwrapper installed due to some plugin needing
it, but you don't want it touching flash. Edit
/etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper and add libflash* to the list of
IGNORE_WRAP and then rerun mozilla_plugin_config (as user and root).

When developing gecko-mediaplayer I found that nspluginwrapper
interfered with some of the javascript commands so that is why I had it
excluded from wrapping.

As for the 64bit flash Adobe has yanked it. So you can either run with a
64bit flash that is very buggy or you can use the 32bit one (less buggy)
wrapped in nspluginwrapper. If there is a bug with the wrapped version.
You might want to try emailing the nsplugginwrapper mailing list as most
likely the developers do not check the fedora bugtracker.

My 2 cents..
