What's the deal with multiple requests for the same external asset? Does the Flash Player cache and therefore ignore requests for the same file, or will it reload the file?

Thanks!

The Flash Player does not ignore requests. Since it makes its requests through the browser typically, the browser will use its cache whenever possible. So once an asset has been loaded, loading it again should be very quick.
