I have been using the 64bit version of flash 10.3 with 64bit Opera,
both under linux emulation, under -current/amd64 for some time now
without any problem whatsoever (the linux emulation code has been
substantially updated in -current).  I haven't had the time to package
flash or to verify and upload my local Opera package to wip, but I
plan to do both at some point (but others please feel free to take the
lead, as I may not find the time for a while).
