This bug occurs when the SWF file is not in the same directory as
the HTML page which calls it. Keep your SWF files in the same
dir as your HTML pages and relative URLs will work fine...

( Mac IE looks for the relative URL beginnning at the HTML, instead
of from the SWF as it should. Thus they must be in the same dir for
the URL to work. )
