Gnash has most Flash features up to SWF done, while above that it is
spotty.  In this case, running the SWF with gnash's verbose output gives:

10666] 11:30:17: UNIMPLEMENTED: SWF9 is not fully supported, trying
anyway but don't expect it to work

for me.

It is a very active project, and they are making significant progress.
However, in the meantime, gnash can't handle this.
