Button problem

Hey there.

So I have made a button from text, and have been having a flickering problem. I guess the text isnt actually text since it was outlined in fireworks then imported. So I guess it is just paths in the shape of text…

Anyhow, I have made the button from this outlined text, applied an overstate and a solid rectangle hit state. I have tried making the hit state just a solid rectangle (no text in frame), a solid rectangle with the text on top of it, and erasing the hit state altogether, and adding it on a separate layer (with the hit layer on top, then on bottom of the text button layer). After doing all this the button is still flickering when i test movie…works fine when i enable buttons. Anyone know what the problem might be?
