  For plugin debugging, edit gnash*/plugin/npapi/plugin.h, and set
GNASH_PLUGIN_DEBUG to 2. Then "make install-plugin". Then when you run
Firefox from a terminal, you'll get massive debugging info from Gnash. I
just "2>&1 tee x" the output, so I can grep it and look at it later, as
it is huge.

  I have a cron job that deletes ~/gnash-dbg.log. :-) If you do the
above trick, you don't need to enable disk logging to gnash-dbg.log.
While there is a small performance hit, I run Gnash like this all the
time and have never noticed a problem.
