Dynamic Menu Spacer

How do I put a spacer of 50 pixels in between each category of this dynamic menu system and not have it put an additional 50 pixel spacer at the bottom?  This 50 pixel spacer should only insert if the there are two or more categories.  

Here's the link:  http://dev.fusionapps.com/wboe/flash/right_nav/flashmenu.html

Here's the code:

data_var = new LoadVars();
data_var.path = this;
data_var.onLoad = function(ok)
{
     if(ok){
          this.path.menuGeneration(this);
     } else {
          trace("CFM PAGE MISSING");    
     }
};

function menuGeneration()
{
     var startY = 1, depth = 0;
     var temp = data_var.cats.split("|");
      
                     //new TextFormat([font, [size, [color, [bold, [italic, [underline, [url, [target, [align, [leftMargin, [rightMargin, [indent, [leading]]]]]]]]]]]]])
     var style1_fmt = new TextFormat("textFont", "14", "0x000000", "bold", "false", "false", "", "", "center");
     var style2_fmt = new TextFormat("Verdana", "12", "0x000000", "true", "false", "false", "", "", "left", "3", "5", "");
     for(var i = 0; i < temp.length; i++){
          var mc = this.createEmptyMovieClip("main" + depth, depth);
          depth++;
          mc.lineStyle(1, 0x912211, 100);
          mc.beginFill(0xEDD593, 100);
          mc.lineTo(198, 0);     mc.lineTo(198, 20);     mc.lineTo(0, 20);     mc.lineTo(0, 0);

          mc.text_txt.selectable = false;
          mc.text_txt.embedFonts = true;
          mc.text_txt.text = temp[i];
          mc.text_txt.setTextFormat(style1_fmt);
          mc._x = 1;     mc._y = startY;
          startY += mc._height + 4;
          var subText = data_var["subcats" + i].split("|");
          var subLink = data_var["urls" + i].split("|");
