Hey Matthias, I replied to this yesterday and forgot to reply to all so it
didn't post.

Bitmaps have always had issues in the plug-in and the official Flash
standalone players.
For years Macromedia claimed there wasn't an problem then with MX2004 they
up and
claimed to have fixed it but did not. Their "fix" was to scale the stage to
which only served to piss developers off even more.

The old work around was to put the bitmap inside a movieclip and set it's
registration point
to the lower right. Then making sure your x y was of integer values.
This worked until MX2004 came out and now I do not know hat people are doing
about it.

Odd thing is, Director's Flash Xtra is probably the better at handling
bitmaps than any other
Flash player but is about 10%-15% slower.

You can also get bitmaps to shear in some instances when a vector shape is
overlayed over a bitmap.

Hope this helps,
