New issue 261 by oscar.boykin: Fullscreen flash movie fails

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. go to hulu.com or cnn.com
2. watch a video using the Adobe Flash player
3. Click the button to make the video go fullscreen

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect it either show the video full screen, or at least open a new
window which I could manage using Xmonad.  Instead, it appears that a new
window is created, splitting the workspace.  The movie seems to show
fullscreen, but half the workspace is covered by firefox.  Any attempt to
move firefox or the fullscreen movie seems to close the fullscreen movie.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
xmonad 0.8 packaged for Ubuntu 8.10 (Intel 32bit).
