Strange IE7 behaviour (with embedded Flash)

Good day, fellows!

I have a strange problem – at my site there is a flash strip, that
loads data dynamically.

It works fine (grabs data from the remote server and presents it),
however in IE7 and its clones I encounter a strange problem where I
can hear clicking sound non-stop (like the page is being reloaded non-
stop), whereas the page is not reloading.
Sounds really strange I know – but I cannot seem to get what the
problem is, since by FF2, FF3, Opera and Safari work just perfect. No
clicks, no reloads, no anything… No errors (checked with FF3 and
Firebug)

If anyone can check this out?
There is a sample page:

Ok, Dave, XHTML cleard and valid.
The problem persists.
Any ideas?

I tried the page with IE 7. I did not get any clicking.

I also retred validating the page at <http://validator.w3.org/>. The
page could not be validated. The message was:

"Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 334 it
contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8 (in other
words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character
Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character
encoding indication.
"The error was: utf8 "\xE2" does not map to Unicode"

Dave, you are right!
.
The thing is that the links at the bottom are coming from the forum
feed and sometimes my script cuts the UTF-8 in the middle of a symbol.
Well, I am thinking on the problem but this is off the subject. (but
fixed for now)

So I suppose this is just my browser.
But did you get any error messages in the status line as well?
