Randomly when I apply a property to an instance on frame 1,
that property will carry over to that instance on frame 2. Even if
I modify the property on frame 2, it gets overridden by frame 1.
For example. I have a movieclip that lies behind text
buttons, and highlights on rollover or keyboard interaction. On
frame one, that clip its at the top of the page, on frame two, the
middle. When I navigate directly from frame one to two, the clip is
at the top as opposed to the middle.
My only solution is to navigate to a blank keyframe first,
where there are no instances of the clip. This is messy. There has
to be a better way to make Flash forget the instance properties.
