[osflash] MovieClip events swallowed ?

I encounter a behaviour that seems odd with the way events are handled
by movie clips. Here is my situation :
- I have one "container" MovieClip that dozens of smaller MovieClips
- I added onPress/onRelease handler to the smaller MovieClips that allow
to drag them within the container
- I then decided to allow the container to be dragged as well by adding
However, when doing this last step, the smaller MovieClips do not
react/perceive onPress/onRelease events anymore. It seems like the
"container" MovieClip swallows all events.
I would have expected that the events would be forwarded to the visible
directly below the mouse cursor, but this is not what happens. Is this
normal ? And if so, how can I do to explicitely forward the event to the
smaller movie clips ?
