Xml flash slideshow+ picture gallery

Hi I have tried to combine the xml photogallery with the slideshow to enable users to click on thumbnails to change photos along with allowing for full slideshow functionality.

However I have run into a problem where the interval that i set through the slideshow function stacks and causes the slideshow to move foward quicker after clicking on a thumbnail one right after the other. I was wondering if someone could help me and show me a better way of doing this.

I have checked on the forums and there is no one answer to this. also i just want a very simple slideshow/ photo gallery. containing only the image description, and thumbnails. no next or previous buttons.

thanks in advance
