When programmatically instantiating a WebService or HTTPService, the ResultEvent does not fire at all.  Using the exact same settings but installed created declaratively in mxml works totally fine, its just when created in actionscript that it doesnt work.
// Programmatic declaration

public class ServiceProxy
private var service:WebService;

public function ServiceProxy(){

service = new WebService();
service.wsdl = "";

// used for authentication
var qname:QName = new QNAME("", "Header");
var header:SOAPHeader = new SOAPHeader(qname, {});
var content:XML = <AuthHeader insert xml here </AuthHeader>;

header.content = content;

// add the event listener
service.addEventListener(ResultEvent.RESULT, serviceResultHandler);

private function serviceResultHandler(event:ResultEvent):void{


public function runService(value:String):void{

// mxml declaration

<s:WebService id="service"
			result="webservice1_resultHandler(event)" />

protected function webservice1_resultHandler(event:ResultEvent):void{

protected function button_clickHandler(event:MouseEvent):void{
var qname:QName = new QName("", "Header");
var header:SOAPHeader = new SOAPHeader(qname, {});
var content:XML = <AuthHeader xml goes here </AuthHeader>;
header.content = content;
