Here's another issue I've encountered.

2. In my pieces (educational type stuff) I often allow the user to select from several options. I've tried these options in their own scene and just had it jump to the scene and return to the options. I've also tried keeping them all in one scene and using frame labels to jump back and forth. Again, a problem with streaming the graphics...if the option is the 4th out of 4 and the user selects it first, they graphics may not be streamed yet and the movie stumbles. Is it better to use labels or scenes to prevent this?

I would suggest using scenes simply because you can then preload progressively - ie. try preloading 3 of 4 scene and if it still causes problems preload all 4 scenes. It also menas that if you move content around or add more content you wont have to change your preloader.
