AS3: Removing child throws error

Here's what I'm trying to do:
1. Load swf
2. Add children movieclips to swf
3. click one of the children movieclips
4. unload swf and start all over again

However I keep getting the error "The supplied DisplayObject must be a child of the caller". Even when I simplify the code down to this:

function loadSwf(newSwf) {
            swfLoader.load(new URLRequest(newSwf));
              swfLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onSwfLoad);
            
            function onSwfLoad(e:Event) {
                  curSwf = e.target.content;
                  stage.addChild(curSwf););
                  unloadSwf();
            }
}

function unloadSwf() {
      this.removeChild(curSwf);
}


I continue to get the error. What am I doing wrong? Argh!

The following works:

<code>

-V
var swfLoader:Loader = new Loader();
var curSwf:MovieClip = new MovieClip();
 
loadSwf("someMovie.swf");
 
function loadSwf(newSwf) {
	swfLoader.load(new URLRequest(newSwf));
	swfLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onSwfLoad);
}
 
function unloadSwf() {
	stage.removeChild(curSwf);
}
 
function onSwfLoad(e:Event) {
	curSwf = e.target.content;
	trace(curSwf);
	stage.addChild(curSwf);
	unloadSwf();
}
