    Dissolve effect w/ rollOverEffect event

      I have a hopefully simple question about using a flex Dissolve effect and a rollover event handler.

      In the below example, when I roll over the label, the label Dissolves to red, correctly, however once the dissolve effect completes, the label's alpha resets back to the normal state. I am expecting, if I rollover the label with the mouse, the Dissolve effect will dissolve the label to red, and stay there as red, until I rollout.

      I've tried to use an EffectEnd handler to set the alpha once the Dissolve is complete, however the problem persists.

      Any ideas?

      <mx:Dissolve id="dissolveIn" color="#FF0000" duration="1000" alphaFrom="0.5" alphaTo="1.0"/>

      <mx:Text id="text2dissolve" text="Roll over me and watch me dissolve and reset" fontSize="24" fontWeight="bold" rollOutEffect="dissolveIn" rollOverEffect="dissolveOut"/>
