Also, does it refrain from creating cookies in your
~/.gnash/SharedObjects directory?

Yes. It still created some subdirectories, but no actual cookies.

So, it seems that so-called Flash shared objects and gnash-cookies (the
ones created by Gnash in /tmp) are different things.

22:19 < gg0> what's the difference between /tmp/gnash-cookies* and stuff under ~/.gnash/SharedObjects? 22:20 < strk> SharedObjects are flash-specific "cookies" while /tmp/gnash-cookies* are common HTTP ones

The former may be disabled via the gnash GUI, as you did, or,
equivalently, by editing (user-specific or system-wide) configuration
files, as I did.

What about the latter?
We still have to figure out whether they can be disabled...

IIRC they contain essential info to make yt working. So we can't move them under SOLSafeDir because if you set it to /dev/null or make it read-only, it'll break yt. I'd move them under ~/.gnash [0], although I don't know what could remove them at the end without introducing new rc options.

Any developers alive?
