Not that simple. It's multiple processes, it's always the same ones, and
killing them doesn't solve the problem (gnome-settings-daemon is vital
to a GNOME session and it auto-respawns when killed; the respawned g-s-d
continues to show the bad behaviour.)

This isn't a Flash issue, I don't have Flash running when it happens.
