We had a discussion about this on the texlive mailing list last week. I would suggest 
Fabian to upload his patched version of flashcards to CTAN. I am told that this is 
possible even without taking over maintainance of the package. As the original maintainer 
is no longer locatable, that would be the easiest way to fix the flashcards package for 
the benefit of everyone!

Also I suggest you change:

> \setotherlanguage{arabic}
> \usepackage{fontspec,xunicode} 



as fontspec is a dependency of polyglossia. The latter does load fontspec if it is not 
already loaded, but it is better practice to explicitly load fontspec before.
