doh! strong evidence that it's the flash plugin. damn, I really
should take my own advice.
oooooh, how I hate flash.....
Uninstall Adobe Flash, clear all your cookies, install Gnash and its
Mozilla plugin, and try it out. It's relatively painless to move
back if it doesn't suit your needs. Gnash in testing is supposed
to have 100% of YouTube.com videos working, and some other sites use
similar enough video embedding that they work as well.
If it doesn't work in Gnash, I simply do without it. But, even if
your desire for flash contest exceeds your dedication to Free
Software, it is worth a try. I imagine the Gnash maintainers are
actually more interested resolving issues on Debian (and other Free
OSes) than Adobe.
 Just reverse the process -- uninstall Gnash, clear your cookies,
reinstall Adobe Flash.
Thanks to you and Scott for the advice.
I've removed flash and that seems to have fixed the problem. Hasn't
crashed in quite a while. The SO wants flash so I put it in her home
directory .mozilla/plugins. She is not as heavy a tab user. the
strange thing is that she _does_ use tabs, and hasn't seen this
happen. This is very interesting since I see it die quite often.
One very interesting detail is that I have two X sessions up and
running, mine and hers, with mine on set-up using
startx -- :1
I wonder if that has something to do with it...
