Buttons, Symbols, and Filters

I just spent another couple hours of my life tracking down a bug in Flash CS3 that turned out to be... drum roll...

If you put a drop shadow on a symbol that is inside of a Button, the movie will freak out without giving any sort of error messages.

Well, at least it wasn't as bad as Friday's LoaderContext problem. Right now I'm also investigating some bizarre behavior with embedded fonts on dynamic fields, more on that when I know more.
