I vaguely remembered someting about this and a google search
turned up this old PR:


The instructions in the referenced pkg-message for /etc/libmap.conf
disappeared after opera was subsequently updated seemingly because it
was no longer needed but I'm not sure of that.

I'm not sure that this will help you but its an easy thing to try
and back out if it doesn't.

Caveat:  I'm not an opera user and I don't use flash. ;-)
