Was already fixed, I hope.

Also fixed in trunk now.

The KDE3 GUI is unmaintained. We don't have enough nearly people to work
on all GUIs, so the only ones that don't rely on contributed patches are
GTK and (largely thanks to John Wimer) KDE4. That has a preferences menu
as of a few days ago, including for saving media.

There should be no FAILs at all in the testsuite, but it does depend on
ming version and on having the correct gstreamer packages installed. The
packaged version in most distros is too old to be very useful, and
although there were some attempts to fix support for it, it would make
the testsuite into an awful mess.

That's not a syntax error, but it isn't supported by older ming
versions. Working round these errors means not only #ifdefs for the
failing code but also providing different test counts, for each SWF
version, as well as for each ming version, and isn't feasible for a

Does it have the correct permissions?

The current release of Gnash is 0.8.4
