Net Render and a special animated Alpha Channel button?

I'm having issues getting Net Render to play well with Materials using an animated bitmap in the alpha channel. At least that's what I think is.
I have some text that starts completely transparent and the alpha channel material "bleeds" the text on. It works fine on 1 work station, but when I send it to Net Render all I get is the background movie (which plays fine). It appears that net render is only using the first frame of the alpha channel movie. Is there a button I have to hit to make it use the whole movie and not just the 1st frame?
I've used Net Render before with great results, but I've never used it with an animated alpha channel material.
I'm using R13 on a 8-core with OSX 10.6.8 with 26GB of RAM.
The clients are OSX 10.6.8 with at least 6GB of RAM.
Rendering to a SAN with tons of disk space.
