Flash on Linux with NFS home directory

I'm supporting a lab full of linux machines.  I've installed HAL on them to meet the requirements, and have gotten the sample player to play the demo video successfully.


However, the users' home directories on these machines are NFS-mounted.  As a result, when a user initializes the DRM stack for their flash plugin on machine A, and then subsequently tries to use it on machine B, they get a DeviceBindingFailed error.


I can work around this by having the user remove their ~/.adobe/Flash_Player/APSPrivateData2 directory and everything in it.  But this is annoying for the user and involves an extra step that they may not know how to take.


Is there a recommended practice for using Flash Player on Linux on multiple machines with a single network-mounted home directory?
