This appears to be a classic aquisition gotcha. You can use the "only"
option of the
dtml-with tag to eliminate namespace conflicts. However, in this case I
might suggest passing the parameters directly to objemedswf instead of using
REQUEST. like so:

<dtml-var "Flash4.objembedswf(swf='login.swf', width='100%',

This leaves no ambiguity about what is being called, where it is located and
what is being passed to it. This creates more readable code IMHO.
