Users can also manually apply the following patch to fix this issue manually. https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/flex-sdk/repo?p=flex-sdk.git;a=commitdiff;h=151c6fa1e46529acb74c1baf056d431da1db0422 Users should upgrade their version of Apache Flex and regenerate their current documentation generated with asdoc.
