decimal places in linux flash player

In short: flash player 9 running in Firefox 2 on linux (ubuntu) seems to have a greater degree of accuracy than flash player on a windows platform.

Specifically when converting a date to a number eg.

myDate:Date = new Date();
trace(Number(myDate));

The trace will have two decimal places on linux and none on windows.

Obviously the way to rectify this discrepency is to round the numeric date to make sure its the same on both Win and Linux platforms.
