It depends on what kind of timeout.  Here is a step timeout from the console
     [java] gumbo/components/RadioButton/properties/FxRadioButton_properties
FxRadioButton_select_icon Failed DispatchMouseClickEvent(body:step 1)
Timeout waiting for updateComplete from srg.s1

It tells you what step number failed and what event it was waiting for.  I
don't have a SWF timeout's output handy, but it does not tell you what step
number failed.

So far I've found a couple of reasons for SWF timeouts:
1) An uncaught exception is thrown.  In this case the stack trace is in the
.log file for the SWF.
2) A really slow SWF.  Sometimes a SWF is creating tons of widgets up front
and can't get output to the test engine in time.  Other times, the SWF
doesn't have the correct fonts embedded and lots of warnings go into the log
and that delays getting output to the test engine.

There is a CheckEmbeddedFonts mixin, but it currently only works for MX
components.  You can look at the log to see if warnings are going in there.
I can tell generally because the fonts are Times New Roman in Spark if the
font isn't embedded.  Or it will show up in the debug console when I run the
