Figure out this one if you will. Code is given below. "page" is an instance of a class I have defined. This class works great. "page.xml" points to an xmlNode. "_root.trace("page.xml = " + page.xml);" gives me the exact output I'm looking for. However...the following traces say undefined. I say this is a Flash bug. *****Note that the if() condition DOES return true and the code block DOES run...and look at what the condition is, especially what it looks at in the Boolean comparison.***** Any suggestions on how to hack around this?
