I have the following object code on a page.  When you go to the site and login (via twitter) a colorbox popup opens asking for the users email address.  However when on the homepage logging in the corners of the colorbox are under the flash.  Usually wmode="transparent" fixes this but it doesn't seem to be working this time.  http://beta.tweetmysong.com is the website if you want to see it...you would have to login tho.  so I have attached a screenshot as well.

Here is the embed code:
<!-- Start Banner -->
			            <div class="hpbanner" id="flashbanner1">
			                
                            <object width="604" height="280">
		                        <param name="movie" value="/public/hpbanner/banner_rotator.swf" />
		                        <param name="flashVars" value="xml_file=/admin/bannerConfig.aspx" />

		                        <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
		                        <embed src="/public/hpbanner/banner_rotator.swf" width="604" height="280" flashvars="xml_file=/admin/bannerConfig.aspx"></embed>
	                        </object>
			            </div>
			            <!-- End Banner -->

Try changing the wmode parameter to "opaque".

Also try with wmode parameter to "window".

This happens sometimes due to wmode set as transparent.
