    getBytesLoaded() gets bigger than total size report

    al13
      I'm trying to program a preloader that uses fixed byte values for measuring how far the loading has proceeded.
      To determine the sizes of single frames, I sum up the values in the size report.
      My problem: when downloading (live as well as in the Flash environment w/simulated download) the getBytesLoaded() func gives me bigger numbers than the size report (both for _root) and so throws off the preloader. How can that be? What am I missing? If I trace() getBytesLoaded() when everything is loaded, that number is about 20% off (higher) compared to the size report.
      Thanks a lot!
