The "Set Hand Cursor" action (from the Flash Player object) doesn't appear to work when set on a Character Image object? Is this something that can be fixed?

In my case I have an active object with a Character Image object on top. If I set the hand cursor on for both the active and the character image objects, in the SWF file the hand cursor only appears when over the exposed parts of the active object, but when over the character image it returns to a normal cursor.
