My issue turned out to be sound drivers
of all things, more accurately an IDT Sound driver
utility that I installed from the Dell website for my Latitude XT2 laptop.
It was a funny problem, but in the end was causing all of the following:
1) anything flash-based to crash
2) any game requiring sound would crash
3) the sound mixer applet would hang each time I clicked the volume icon
4) RDP client would hang at "Configuring Remote Session", possibly because during that process the RDP client would attempt to connect the sound device with the remote machine, causing it to hang...or something?
Anyway, since removing this sound driver-related utility, all of the above problems have gone away.
