Do you have the flash embeded in the same page where there is edit/modify buttons?
If not there you should not have any problem in getting the updated xml provided you add a time stamp at the end of the xml path while calling it from flash, like this:

The value of r can be a random number or time stamp to make it unique.

So you do not have access to its fla?
Is the xml path hard-coded within flash?
