<embed> in HTML loaded by Webview Broken in Sense UI?

 I have a WebView that loads HTML that contains an <embed>. When
loading in stock android (G1, NexusOne, Ion, etc) it looks fine and
can be clicked on to watch it in the YouTube app. But when loading it
using either the HTC EVO or Incredible (both Sense UI phones) the
space where the content should be is completely blank.

Try this code below... Any ideas? I'm stumped. Certainly looks like an
HTC Sense bug?

WebView wv = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.wv1);
    Here is the test embed:
    <embed src=\" http://www.youtube.com/v/-ptYTGTNiyQ \"
        type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" width=\"280\"
"text/html", "UTF-8");

In my testing, this will run fine on all Android versions, without
SenseUI, but it shows blank for what looks like any SenseUI phone, so
the user can't click on it.

1. Takes too long to build libwebcore.so.

If I just change one line in WebView.cpp and do a

   mmm external/webkit

It takes almost 3 minutes on a fast quad-core Xeon. Most of the time
is spent linking libwebcore.so

Is there a way to speed up the linking process. This is just for
development so I am willing to give up optimization.
