wmode direct

Flash used to have a major vertical tearing problem, which seems to have gone away. I'm posting this so I can experiment with different machines to see if Adobe improved something, or if machines have gotten better and the problem went away on its own.

Basically the reproduction was that if you animated a vertical bar across the screen, it would tear heavily as it animated.
