No of course. While haXe is sometime "cleaning-up" some API by enforcing
some good usages and more strict typing, it can't modify the internal
behavior of the Flash Player.
In the case of MovieClipLoader, you should wait for both onLoadInit and
onLoadComplete, and even in that case I already saw some problems where
some users have a somehow corrupted SWF in cache.
As for the other problems, I'm sorry I can't be of any help.
Welcome to the cruel Flash world ;) (*)
