Real SMIL code question.

Don't know if this is the list to submit code questions, but thought I'd 
give it a shot.

The code below works ok, across most OS's and players. But ONLY if I 
comment out, and do not use the "sequence" process.
Using <seq> yields a variety of anomolies: regions that don't go away, 
frozen video, etc.
We create a lot of SMIL processes, and the only ones giving us problems 
are the ones with a sequence of "par" elements.
The rp files are standard. Everything is streaming from a Real Server. 
Wondered if anything might jump out at you SMIL coders.
