This isn't the recommended way to embed a swf.

You should use SWFObject to embed instead.

I know I should target your problem instead, but using a better way to embed the SWF may well just eliminate the problem.

The documentation will teach you how to embed a SWF.

Let me know if SWFObject works for you.
