too bad that i cannot get a proper debugging.
I'm on Debian Sid 64-bit except for pinning Nvidia 290.03 from Experimental. I have the constant crashes in 64-bit Flash but my approach is to use 32-bit Flash instead and use nspluginwrapper. Flash (so far only tried YouTube) seems fine.

Instructions below are a bit dated, didn't find ia32-libs-libnss3 ia32-libs-gtk but that doesn't seem to be an issue.

tar -zxvf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz #unpacks
mv /full/path/to/ /permanent/location
sudo aptitude install nspluginwrapper ia32-libs ia32-libs-libnss3 ia32-libs-gtk
nspluginwrapper -v -i /permanent/location/
