I've posted a new file at http://www.canfieldstudios.com/flash3/tweenbug/
which contains a third version that has had no elements moved, but with the
stage smaller, from the outset. The distortion of the "a" still occurs, so
that blows THAT theory, and lends credence to the idea that some sort of
control handles must be fully contained within the stage to shape-tween
properly (or something else entirely).
