    Problem with Transitions and custom components


      Browser: FireFox 3.6.13
      Flash Runtime: 10.1
      OS: OSX Snow Leopard
      Flex Builder/ActionScript 3


      I have a custom MXML component MyTestTestPanel.  I have defined states and transitions as shown below.
      I have a button that is pushed which changes the current view state of the MyTestPanel instance.
      On first push of the button, the MyTestPanel instance is correctly added to the the HBox container,
      However the resize doesn't happen smoothly,  the resize happens instantly.
      On subsequent pushes of the button, the Panel smoothly transitions during the resize.

      The interesting thing here is. If I remove the declaration of the HBox from the MyTestPanel definition.

      Everything works as expected.


      Huh ??
      Can someone point out what I'm doing wrong here ?
