I wouldn't depend to heavily on this behavior, it seems like something
Macromedia will fix when they get around to it.
It would be great to have a way to suspend and step through an app, but the
free flash player doesn't have any documented or even known undocumented way
to do this. The Flash development environment that you buy from Macromedia
has a special debug-enabled version of the player, but we can't use that,
and the protocol for controlling it isn't publicly documented either.
