Bush Video Censored?

Someone threw a shoe at George W Bush and when I tried to check it out the video wouldn't play. Firefox just gave me a gray box. Has the Sri Lankan government started censoring the web as  they have being threatening to? Perhaps it's the US government that's doing it. Apparently it's not censorship after all  because Download Helper can grab the video off YouTube. But VLC wouldn't play the locally saved video. It just says 'Bus error' and dies off. Mplayer crashed too. It's crash message (when your run it  from the command line) states the obvious:

MPlayer interrupted by signal 7 in module: ao2_init - MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen. It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug. Has the Secret Service introduced a Trojan for Linux? Is there some global conspiracy? Tried running Firefox from the command line to see if it could shed some light on it. It could:

But why is Firefox frenetically saying the same thing about a missing soundwrapper over and over again? Psyops no doubt but it could also have something to do with the earlier issue of flash videos being muted. Syslog had an error message too, it was less verbose but it's again something that should not have been

I decided to forget the whole thing and tried to concentrate on my work, not so easy when you are waiting for secret service agents to knock on your door.  They have taken over Netbeans too.

/home/raditha/jbproject/rup4/nbproject/build-impl.xml:411: Problem creating jar: No space left on device BUILD FAILED (total time: 8 seconds)

Hey wait a minute, that error says the disk is full, but the disk in question is nothing more than /dev/shm/ - that's where pulseaudio writes it's log. So there is no conspiracy or trojans after all. Firefox Flash Plugin, VLC and Mplayer all failed because PulseAudio failed. But who or what caused /dev/shm to get filled up? It turns out there was a folder named rMD-session-2258  with nearly 1 GB of data in it (my /dev/shm/ has been configured to be 1GB) The culprit was GTK Record My Desktop a forgotten instance of it had created that directory and it had put all it's temp files there, it had only stopped after all the space had been eaten away. ! Killed it immidiately. Cleaned up the shared memory device and now I know that president Bush has pretty good reflex. He probably does 50 ducks in the gym everyday to be prepared for these incidences.
