Unfortunately, calling pdf2swf in the manner of a function won't do you
a lot of good!

I can manage a few off the cuff suggestions ( see below ). I'll leave you
judge how helpful..

More than one 'v' will up the verbosity level, try -vv or -vvv

Adding -I will do a dummy run, showing you what is happening.

Oh dear. The 'D:\' indicates a version of Windows. :o(  How are you at scripting
in it, or in a language running under it?

Only thing I can think of,

 - a dummy run with the appropriate verbose level to pick up and log the 'error'
   page numbers
 -  have two different versions of the pdf2swf command string on an branch; the
    'good' page sequence goes to one, the 'bad' to another. Use -p [ranges] 

 - cement the swfs back together with swfcombine.

Best I can come up with. A bit of work undoubtedly, but possible.
