Check the hit area of the button that you made, make sure that the hit area is comprised of a simple shape that covers tha entire button.

I think it would be best if you post a copy of the fla file and make it available for all the experts here to see it (it's against policies to just send the file to 1 person via e-mail instead of letting everyone have a crack at it).
