It sounds like you answered your own question... Using a single-frame
loop will not change the output to the screen, since output is only
redrawn every frame. It's confusing because Actionscript has a timeline,
unlike other programming languages. You should check your 'while'
condition on the second frame and get it to loop back to the first frame
until the 'while' condition is satisfied.
