    simple GET request with odd crossdomain issue


      Hi all


      I am having a confusing time with a simple GET request. When I make my own url string it works fine, but if I use the URLVariables format I get a 2048 sandbox security error.  I can see in the second case that there is a spurious '/crossdomain.xml' string added to the GET - which is clearly the issue.


      My question is, why is the spurious '/crossdomain.xml' added in the second case and not the first? I have all the code below the second case commented.


      All the correct crossdomain.xml files are in place so that is not the issue here.


      Many thanks




      public function ReadXML(server:String,account:String,file:String,type:String,service:String,protocol:Stri ng,port:String,output:String,playlist:String,callback:Function ):void
                  _callback = callback;

                  // this works
                  var url:String =  server+'/?account='+account+'&file='+file+'&type='+type+'&service='+service+'&protocol='+ protocol+'&port='+port+'&output='+output+'&playlist='+playlist;
                  var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(url);

                  // this fails with 2048       
                  /*var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
                  variables.account = account;
                  variables.file = file;
                  variables.type = type;
                  variables.service = service;
                  variables.protocol = protocol;
                  variables.port = port;
                  variables.output = output;
                  variables.playlist = playlist;
                  request.data = variables;*/
