The main trouble here is that we don't detect object-subrequest requests and their source now.

Here is one heuristic of detecting of object-subrequest request which works here and looks fragile (need more testing) and it actually fixes this bug.

But I would say it's only one small step. Even if detect that it's the object-subrequest request I have not managed yet the way to detect the issuer of the request. It could be important in some cases when the source is whitelisted and thus all subrequests are allowed as well. JIC, also take into account that there could be several embedded objects on the page and we should correctly find the exact issuer of the request.

Also one important point here is that fortunately for us Flash.ocx (my current version is uses monikers to send the http requests, but it may use raw sockets as well and we won't be able to intersect such queries so easily.
