We've had some problems in this area recently, but perhaps not quite the same
as yours. We've been working with RevBrowser on OS X, for content that
included some Flash elements. Performance wasn't noticed as an issue, but
interactivity, in particular dragging, was very difficult. Where we had
access to the source code, we found that recompiling in AS3 made a
considerable difference; however we weren't able to fix all issues like this.
It seems that some ways that Flash/certain Flash movies detect mouse events
don't work reliably under RevBrowser.
Other than compiling under AS3, if your work isn't already, I don't have
anything to suggest; but it would certainly be good to build up some lore
