Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the "Loading" screen have to be 
loaded from the server to even run?  Or, a better way to ask the 
question is, doesn't the loader have to be transmitted from the server 
before it can start loading its data?  This may not be making any sense, 
so I'll do a scenario.

My understanding of flash is this:

1. browser contacts server to request file (in this case, flash application)
2. server sends flash app (loader) back to browser
3. flash app runs then connects back to the server to retrieve the data 
(fancy "loading" screen is displayed)
4. server replies by sending data that the flash loader requested.
5. flash animation plays and everyone is happy.

It sounds like yours is breaking down somewhere in step 3.  If this is 
true, then your problem is how your flash loader app connects to the 
server to retrieve the actual data/classes.

Might there be a firewall on your laptop that is not on the server?  
Might the flash loader be trying to connect to an IP address and your 
laptop doesn't understand since it's on the same machine?

If apache never served the loader to your browser, wouldn't it just show 
a blank space where the flash was supposed to go?

Again, I've never programmed flash myself, but this is my understanding 
of the flash "handshake" to get an app loaded.
