Flash Filters and Exporting Hi-res Images

Here's a quirk I came across in Flash. I noticed when exporting hi-res with a blur filter, that the blur filter remains at a lower resolution. If you zoom-in in the Flash IDE, you can also see this pixelation. This is strange since zooming in in the Flash Player produces a hi-res result.

Here is the full-size version of the image above. The example is hi-res output of this Flash illustration.

I wonder if this a known issue? You can work around it by scaling everything up in Flash and exporting at 100%, but that is a bit cumbersome.
