Finally! I used to get complaints about OS X installation all the time. ;)

The "reimport" issue crops up every so often, for pdf2swf, too. 
I haven't had the chance to investigate this yet, among others because
I so far haven't purchased any Flash version.
It seems to be somewhat tricky to get this right, though. I once
received two SWF files, one reputedly importable, the other not, and
they only differed in some random details.

That method should also be applicable in your case.
