A preloader by definition is a short, small movie that loops endlessly until the swf is completely loaded; the load-end stops the movie.
You're describing a movie that wants to end when it reaches its last frame. What does it have to do with the load process? You cannot guarantee which will end first, the movie or the load, so you need to know what you want to happen in either case depending on which event happens first.
