and who said it's big deal. i can certainly define required options. however it was certainly unexpected behavior even after using --swfAge 0.

the issue would have been same for non whining linux users. doesn't auto hashing benefits the linux users in same way.

wouldn't it be better to check if the url contains iView swf hosting domain and then apply hlen and full url comparison in other cases.

just for reference see last few posts here for original problem:
