[Swftools-common] Source-code related question. Hard to subject.

This question is going out to two types of reader, those who tinker with the source code of swftools (especially Matthias, of course) and those who use Linux.  First, some background on the problem.

I'm trying to hide the mouse pointer in my flash file, which is fine in and of itself, but there is a peculiarity in Linux right now.  In the stand-alone player the pointer is hidden, just as one would expect, but when embedded into a web page it is not.  This is a well recognized deficiency of AS3 mouse hiding under Linux (I haven't found an explanation for it yet though).

However, examples written in AS2 successfully hide the mouse!  Now I don't know whether the difference here is down to the AS version itself, or how it's handled by Adobe Flash Player for Linux, or what, but I had an idea and I would appreciate input.

Might it be possible to alter some of the as3compile code so that it will implement AS2's method of hiding the pointer?  Can that conceivably work, or is it totally incompatible?

Or is anyone aware of another way around this problem?  It's very frustrating!
