[swfmill] Possible on svg import and generated movieclip properties.

I am using swfmill to import an svg into my swf, and everything is working
perfectly, except some of the properties of the generated movie clips. I am
importing a map of the United States, and each state is broken up into a
separate group or path. When I check the properties of each state inside of
the instance1 object, their width and height match the actual drawn width
and height. But when I check the x and y properties, they always report at
0. This wouldn't be a huge issue, except that I am creating mouseovers
which zoom each state outwards by adjusting the _xscale and _yscale, and
when the zooming occurs, it appears to be including the offset from left and
top in the zoom, meaning that each state moves down and to the right (and it
gets excessively worse as I move to the eastern states). If the width
reflected the offset, or the x and y were the offset, I could account for
the difference and move it where it belongs. I have tried drawing some
simple shapes in MMC, and their properties appear to work as I would
expect. This leads me to believe that the issue occurs when swfmill imports
the svg, and I was wondering if there would be any way to get this fixed, or
suggestions to work around the issue. Any help is greatly appreciated.
PS. swfmill is awesome, it made it possible to automate the generation of
the map and actions for each state saving me many hours of work, thanks for
all of the hard work!
