Thanks for finding this issue.  I think we should change AssertError to clip
off everything after the second ":".  Then it would compare just
"ReferenceError: Error #1074:".

Another option is to create a low-level sequence of code to generate the
correct answer.  I did that on some tests already.  There were some tests
that would sort some french strings and different Mac OS versions reported
different ordering due to some unicode standard change.  The goal of those
tests were to make sure all of the Flex sorting code would return the same
order as the player would on a simple sort of some strings in an Array so
the test sets up a low-level array, sorts it, and makes that the "correct
answer".  You could do somehing similar by setting up a simple AS class with
a read-only property, try to write to it, capture the error message,
determine the pattern, convert it to be the correct answer for a read-only
property on the mx.resource.Locale class.

Yet another option is the first option but also add new properties that
require that certain non-translatable strings be in the remainder of the
error message.  So, a ReferenceError of #1074 that has the strings 'variant'
and 'mx.resource.Locale' in it.  That would really limit false results.

I think I like this last one best.  How about you?
