On the flash object, if you set wmode to transparent (instead of opaque), will it work? That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the flash because I've heard of this problem over and over again a while back.

I tried that, but I think there's another issue going on. If you try to click on the hovering <ul>, it disappears. So, I'm thinking it's a positioning issue, rather than solely the <object>.
