Flash clearInterval Function Not Working??

Hello,

I am trying to hide an image based on a rollover function.  Once rollover occurs, the setInterval function is set to time out at 4 seconds and display a movie clip.  This works great except after awhile Flash gets confused when rollover buttons many times.  Flash displays the mc too quickly if buttons are rolled over multiple times.  Any other ideas are appreciated.

Thank you,

Terry

add clearInterval to your rollOver, before setInterval:

for (i=0; i<6; i++) {
      this["broadcastImage"+i+"_btn"].onRollOver = function() {
            //REMOVE SPLASH IMAGE
            clearInterval(timerInterval);
            _root.splashImage_mc._visible = false;
            timerInterval = setInterval(timesUp, 4000);
      };
}

It is probably better practice to check if timerInterval is undefined before clearing, but it does work, and without any errors.
