Hard to know what that means when you're talking about a moving object
that may have user-interaction. Personally when I need to document a
disfunciton I get gimp's Acquire-screenshot-window thing ready, run
gnash from the command line and suspend (control-Z) it to freeze
something I can grab.

Yes, the same way that mplayer and friends have a play-to-file
video-out option and create a movie/sound file. For automatic testing
of moving images that would be perfect. However, in an ideal world
that applies to all of the renderers, not just AGG

Menu-save-as only really applies to the .swf stream, since it is the
only static object around to be saved. Random screen shotting would be
better done with an external screenshot application I feel, and there
are plenty of thise already.

put it on the list... :)
