Problem with Combobox component

While working on a website for one of my client, I came across a strange problem with Combobox component.

If you try to put a Combobox in a flash & then try to load that .swf file in another flash using loadClip function of MovieClipLoader it doesn't work. You can't even click it to see the items.

After googling for sometime I found that its a bug in Flash and the work around is if you simply drag a Combobox component in your parent Flash & then just delete it from the stage leaving it in the library, it works perfectly fine.

And you can click and select any item from the Combobox embedded in the child Flash, loaded in the parent movie.
