Why does a Flash Cookie from keep getting set on my machine?

I use a Firefox Plug-In called Better Privacy, which I check regularly to keep track of -- and delete -- Flash Cookies which secretly try to track my browsing.

I noticed a few days ago that I keep on deleting a Flash cookie from, but it keeps reappearing.

Anyone have any ideas? This one has me stumped, but I admit I have not spent much time investigating this. It doesn't appear to be overtly malicious... but I would sure love to know what keeps setting it.

Comments appreciated.

Hi Fergie,
same problem here, but only thing I can find is your first post published on several websites all over the net.
Now would you mind posting _what_ you have figured out ;-). That would be really great.
Thanks in advance.
