Tried all varieties of "wait" but they didn't work. I'd thought of doing
a "send" cycle but was hoping not to have to rewrite if anyone can think
of anything else. Might have to do it though.
I also tried to set the currentTime of the movie to the duration, which
would force it to load in its entirety. Didn't work. That's one reason I
think it may be more of a refresh problem than a loading problem.
