Question mc variable access...

I came across this the other day and it was really frustrating...

I've got a movie in the Library with a link name of "L_mClip" and the following code inside it's frame:
ActionScript Code:
this._myPlace = "Planet Earth";
This is in the _root timeline:
ActionScript Code:
stop(); //this will trace attachMovie("L_mClip", "i_mClip", _root.getNextHighestDepth()); _root.onMouseDown = function(){     trace("trace within _root.onMouseDown : " + _root.i_mClip._myPlace); } //...while this will not! trace("trace within _root actions = " + _root.i_mClip._myPlace);

Any thoughts? Why can't I access it outside of the onMouseDown? Am I taking crazy PILLS?!? It's gotta be something really stupid on my part...
