Wmode=transparent issues in IE

i have a horizontal menu with drop menus in a div above my html with wmode set to transparent. this works fine in all browsers except IE. In IE, the browser seems to interpret the end or edge of the flash as being the actual edge of any visible or 100 alpha flash element (clip or whatever) instead of being the dimensions of the flash movie itself.

This causes a problem with rolling out of the drop menu as it’s on top of html. the rollout never gets triggered in flash b/c the browser thinks you’ve rolled onto the html immediately even though you are still within the flash movie dimensions.

All other browsers correctly interpret the flash dimensions as those assigned within flash itself and within the javascript embed code.

anyone have a workaround for this?
