I've committed a patch in r12127 avoiding the registration

see is a 0.1 second sleep when leaving page in case the
standalone player gets stuck.

In my case, that's a frequent occurrence, because most of the time Gnash
doesn't quit in the couple of nanoseconds between the closure of the
file descriptor and the first call to waitpid(). And in a page with a
dozen or so Flash animations the time spent waiting quickly adds up.
This demonstrates the problem the timeout function was intended to

I have an alternative fix that I'm presently testing.
