Security Sandbox violation with crossdomain.xml set to allow domain *

I have a crossdomain.xml sitting in the root of both static.mysite.com and www.mysite.com:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy
  SYSTEM "http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
  <allow-access-from domain="*" />

yet I still get Security sandbox violation: ExternalInterface caller http://static.mysite.com/swf/Slide.swf cannot access http://www.mysite.com/.

www.mysite.com/index.php shows the Slide.swf (whose source is http://static.mysite.com).  There's a javascript function on index.php that I want to call from Slide.swf

It seems no amount of loosening of security restrictions will allow this to work.  I have complete control over both domains - what's the deal here??
