With master, the movie does next to nothing, after:

4159:1] 2713 ERROR: Native function called as constructor threw exception: Recursion limit reached (256)

But at least the OOM bug is fixed.

@benjamin: Is this the same as "action limit hits don't prevent new actions from being triggered" bug we discussed recently ?

The following SWF triggers an action limit exception, but continues to generate new objects (very quickly!) until you run out of memory. It goes at about 100 MB per second for me.

gtk-gnash -j 616 -k 170 -U 'http://www.amd.com/de/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx' -P 'PARAM=' -P 'SRC=/de/PublishingImages/Public/Flash/homepage/homepage_spotlight/HP_slider.swf' -P 'data=/de/PublishingImages/Public/Flash/homepage/homepage_spotlight/HP_slider.swf' -P 'height=170' -P 'type=application/x-shockwave-flash' -P 'width=616' -P 'wmode=transparent' 'http://www.amd.com/de/PublishingImages/Public/Flash/homepage/homepage_spotlight/HP_slider.swf'

The fact we can run out of memory is not a bug.
