I went thru all the same steps yesterday.  I sent mail to the FlashBuilder
team in India before I left yesterday with essentially all the info you
have in your email.  I was hoping to find a response this morning but I
did not.  If I don't hear back by tomorrow I will ask again.  I suspect FB
4.6 has the same issue.
