    navigateToUrl with "_parent" not working?

      It appears that the "_parent" target for navigateToUrl is not working.

      1. We created a Flex app that contains a linkButton and compiled the code. The event for this button is:

      navigateToURL(new URLRequest(gURL), '_parent');

      where "gURL" is a fully qualified URL.

      2. We created Web page that contains a link to the HTML containing the embeded .swf file. We used some JavsScript to that clicking on the link opens the app in a new window.

      3. We run the app, but when we click on the button, the URL opens in the same window, not in the parent.

      Has anyone else run into this problem? Is there a workaround?

      The other targets (_blank, _self, _top) seem to work OK.

      And we have allowScriptAccess set to "always".
