20 on the mac (25 for windows) is the version that's broken (load variables
and get url to pass data from the browser to the server don't work from it).
I went back and checked my version number since it looks like it might be
important :) I'm on 14 I guess (4,0,14,0) (and I guess I can provide this
one to anyone trying to keep a file of them all if you like).

Why have there been so *many* anyway? I think I've upgraded 2 or 3 times
since flash 4 and once fairly recently (after xmas). I've never noticed this
as being important before - either you had the flash 3 plug-in or you
didn't... if it's now going to matter what *version* of the flash 4 plug-in
you have... that's really like a problem man :) All that trouble getting
people to install it in the first place (or have it pre-installed please)
how often do you think they're going to go back and get a new one? If it was
preinstalled on their computer, probably never...would never have occured to
me to do. That seems like an enormous number of revisions - was the first
release *that* messed up? geez...
