Maximum number of lines of code per frame

Hi ppl.

A colleague of mine is experiencing some wierd problems, he's got hundreds of lines of code (he refuses to rewrite it) -  but it seems that there's a limit to the number of lines of code he can have on a frame, before it goes wonky.

Any one experience something similar?

Is there such a limit?

I've been developing in Flash since version 4 and I have never experienced a problem because of too many line of code in 1 frame.

We came across something similar to that with flash mx 2004 where there is a limit to an as file.  I would assume that is similar to just scripting in a frame.   But as to a problem with "hundreds" of lines of code,  hmmm that sounds fishy.  I had to creat a game written all in one frame published for flash 5 with over 3000 lines of code, and didn't have a problem.  I don't see why hundreds would be.  What version of Flash?  If MX 2004 does he have the 7.2 update (highly recommended).  And if all else failes... I suggest a cut and paste rebuild.  I have had a couple of Fla's go bad for some reason, but that is rare.

What errors does the flash debugger give out when u try to build the file into swf?
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

maybe the processor can't handle all the instructions?

i suspect the code isin't great, but he refuses to rewrite it. He's using a number of case statements.
Oh well, you can take a horse to the water and all that!
