More information if you want to look into it yourself.  The goal for FlexJS
is to not dispatch any flash.events.Events and other Flash low-level events.
Instead, we're wrapping all events in org.apache.flex.events.Event.  This
allows the developer to see where they import flash.events.Event in their
code and know that those areas need to change.

The AS-side in FlexJS does consume and dispatch flash.events.Event because
it has to wherever it touches the Player APIs.  It just isn't supposed to
dispatch any as documented events in the API.

So, this sort of bug happens when FlexJS dispatches a flash.events.Event
that it didn't wrap, or the player dispatched something that we didn't trap
