      I recently enhanced our Ant build process to use RSLs to reduce the output swf size. We noticed the watermark reappears, whereas without the RSL compilation, it does not appear. Relevant Ant targets (which only use an exec call to run the command-line flex compiler):

      Steps to reproduce:
      Compile using RSLs - in our app, the watermark appears. Disable the RSL option, and the watermark does not appear. Please see relevant Ant targets.

      Actual Results:
      Watermark appears.

      Expected Results:
      No watermark.

      Workaround (if any):
      None - I have already tried the following:
      1) setting the license in the license.properties file
      2) setting the license in the flex-config.xml file
      3) using the license as a compiler option
