getURL problem with _blank window

I've created a CD-based flash presentation, that opens various other swfs in blank windows, above the original - on clicking out of the loaded windows, the main swf remains in its own window underneath. The following is the code i use to load the other swfs:

on (release) {
      getURL("TALAVERA_ICATCHER.swf", _blank);

i've just tried to create an online version of the same concept, but for some reason, the _blank instruction isn't followed - in this eg, TALAVERA_ICATCHER.swf loads into the same window as the main swf - to get back to the main swf, i have to click the browser 'back' button.

what's wrong with my code?
why aren't _blank windows opening?

the correct syntax of _blank should be with the double quotes:
getURL("TALAVERA_ICATCHER.swf", "_blank");
