Something running in user space being able to affect something else that runs in a separate user space process is a failure of OS security, more specifically process sandboxing, IMO.

When my mail client crashes, I don't have to reboot my PC because the UI has basically turned unresponsive, only leaving me with a useless mouse pointer floating around. Why should it be different with Flash ?
