Please give some information about the used GTK theme, the environment you use it in (KDE or GTK), and if you're using a compositing manager or EXA. I can't reproduce it on my laptop which runs GNOME.

I can confirm this, opera hangs loading a page with a flash animation; then it only show a grey rectangle without any contextual menu. Manually downgrade to gtk2-2.10.13 seems to solve this issue.

I use KDE with QtCurve theme. The QtCurve theme is set in GTK2, too. (qtcurve-kde3-0.52.3-1, qtcurve-gtk2-0.52.3-1) I don't use any compositing manager, just pure kwin.

Found out the OpenOffice part of this bug is caused by invalid initialisation of GTK in openoffice when operating in KDE UI mode. I think this is also true for flash when running under opera (Opera isn't a GTK browser). I think I found the commit that causes the freeze. When running strace on openoffice when this happens it shows no action, which looks like a deadlock to me. There's a commit that sets some lock/unlock statements in the latest version of GTK, so reverting that one should do it.
