I'm running the latest flashplugin:

Has someone seen similar behaviour?

Of course. 80M in .xsession-errors.old yesterday.

I'm wondering why abrtd is deleting the core dump file? (Why is it
'corrupted or bad'?)

There is no flash-plugin-debuginfo package provided by Adobe, and
a good backtrace cannot be created. Filing bad/non-detailed crash reports
of stuff running in nspluginrapper would be useless. Especially if it's
closed source software. Blacklisting the whole nspluginwrapper package
seems to be a trade-off.
