I have this class called test, which is linked to a symbol which is a movieclip.
when the movieclip appears in the first frame, the constructor gets called, when gotoAndPlay to another frame, the constructor is triggered again, as if it is a new instance.
I made sure it is the same instance name across frames.
I tried moving the movieclip across frames with and without keyframes but it still gets triggered multiple times.
I also tried without a class, I put the trace inside an onload handler inside the symbol and it too got triggred mutliple times.
what is going on ? how can I keep it down to one instance of the class/code/event handler.
class test extends MovieClip
trace (">> new instance, name: " + this._name);
