Width bug in flash with components

As I was working on my Adobe Air email client yesterday it took most of my time trying to figure out why loading two movieclips with exactly the same proportions would have different widths.Here is what I discovered and in my eyes this is a bug.


The swf example above shows that the window with a scroll bar has a bigger width than what it actually is. This is because flash components are built with containing all mouse states in one frame and the width is adding all the unused states when totalling up the width.
