Yep - that solved it.  Thanks!

(Also, I see that Tomcat 5.0.19 was released, so I tested it against that
version and got the same problem on Solaris.)

This is a bug with the way Internet Explorer handles plugins, then.  My guess is
that the file isn't cached so that when the plugin attempts to access it, it
doesn't receive anything causing it to silently fail.

I just tried uploading the Badgers-Badgers SWF and seeing if it would fail in
the same way, and it does.  So this happens with any IE plugin.

Mind you, the way Internet Explorer fails with this is weird.  It just indicates
that the resource is not available, despite all other indications being that it
is.  It also happens when you attempt to directly access the resource through
IE, it asks you to download the file and then tells you that it isn't available.
 It might be worth re-openning this bug and removing the "no-cache" behavior if
"MSIE" appears in the User-agent header.
