I don't know flare enough, anyway the Flash model contains the concept
of "timelines". These are usually specified sequentially in a text form
but are played in parallel by the player.

If you can provide a testcase showing the problem that'd be the most
useful thing to work on. The testcase should prove itself to be
expected to work when feed to the proprietary player and clearly fail
when feed to Gnash. Best way to do this is by printing FAILED or PASSED
after checking some conditions. Best way to print is using the Dejagnu.swf
file, which will print both visually (in a textarea) and "debuggually"
(using traces). See if you can get flare to use Dejagnu.swf. More
details in the manual.

Keep in mind that even if you can't get a test to fail it's still worth
to keep it in the repository, to avoid future breaks of the specific layout your
testing, so you'd not be wasting time.
