Generally I've not hard problems with cross browser issues. I just tested with IETester...and it works fine for me. Have you tried on a computer that still runs IE6? Is your flash up-to-date on the VM?
Its more likely an issue with the flash install..even though bugs like this are possible. I would think that they would have been addressed by now if they affect IE6.
