File always gets corrupted after just a few changes

Apr 19, 2011 5:40 AM

I have a big ressource XFL file which keeps a lot of graphic ressources for a computer game.

It contains a lot of externally linked graphic symbols (Linked as AS3 classes)

 

This file is extremely prone to getting corrupt after just a few changes. It's like walking through a mine-field.

 

The main symptom is: Suddendly flash starts duplicating layers and Symbols - seemingly endless!

 

What can it be that triggers this? I always close and re-open the file when this happen and everything is back to normal for some minor changes until it happens again.

 

There are also some symbols where it takes almost half a minute before it can be displayed in the library preview window when clicking on it in the library, with very high CPU consumptions.

 

Being a programmer myself I suspect that there is something like a "feedback loop" that causes this behaviour: Some internal back-referencing of nested symbols which gets caught in some kind of loop at a certain point.
