Yes, this is by design in the swf format to allow external .swfs to be
loaded as
movieclips. The swf when loaded in this manner uses the _width and _height
properties of the content loaded not the swf file's header data.

The _width and _height properties can/will also change on a frame by frame
if the content on each frame changes size. Put a box shape in the background
serve as a bounding box across all frames is one way to keep them from
