Flash movies which contain interactive form elements, specifically the text
input box exhibit a sort of lag when typing in them.  Please see the chat flash
movie at http://chilax.com/chat/ for an example.  When typing anything, only one
of every 3 or so characters is recorded to the text box rendering it almost
impossible to use.  The same flash movie downloaded and run in FlashPlayer works
fine.  The same page works fine in Mozilla 1.2.1.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://chilax.com/chat/
2. Type something into the login box to see the lag and skipped characters
3. Log in to use the longer message entry box for another example.

Actual Results:  
Text entry into the flash text-element is lagged, and skips characters.

Expected Results:  
Allowed entry at a comporable speed to a normal HTML form text input

Confirmed using Chimera/2002112604, it definitely skips characters. (It
WorksForMe using FizzillaMach/2002112607.)
Ever confirmed: true

Also, you can't Command-A in the text box to select all, for deletion.

This apparently is no longer a problem in today's build (20030405).

Please provide a new test URL, the one mentioned is broken.
