Javascript bug and random frames: alternative solution?

Hello all, I'm working on a SCORM 1.2 compatible eLearning project on Captivate 6.1.0.319 (subscription edition), and I've just come across the bug described very precisely here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq9K9lvq-5I and here: http://www.cpguru.

Hello all,
I'm working on a SCORM 1.2 compatible eLearning project on Captivate 6.1.0.319 (subscription edition), and I've just come across the bug described very precisely here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq9K9lvq-5I
and here:
http://www.cpguru.com/warning-adobe-captivate-6-and-javascript-bug/
Basically, any javascript used in the project would break the SCORM compatibility, either sending wrong completion information to the system, or in my case, also shutting down the eLearning module and also closing the window. This problem occurs only in IE, as other browsers seem to work fine.
My target group of users is a corporate environment, in which IE is the #1 platform; it's unrealistic to ask for a browser update, so I have to find a solution to be able to publish the project correctly. The same blogger who uncovered the problem wrote that it's possible to receive a patch from Adobe which consists of an updated version of the file Mainmovie.swc to swap in one of the program's directories (more info here:http://www.cpguru.com/fix-for-the-adobe-captivate-6-javascript-bug/ ).
The problem is that the supposed fix (which you have to request via email and it's not directly downloadable), is said to be available only for Captivate 6.0.xx and not for the 6.1 Subscription edition.
As my project contains a lot of drag and drop interaction, I cannot afford to downgrade to 6.0 to try to use the patch, and I was wondering if somebody has had the same problem and can help out.
In detail, I only use javascript in one slide to simulate a random display of rollover images (a button calculates the current position of the playhead and jumps to a random point of the slide, chosen from an array of predefined frame numbers; at every 'stop' there is a different rollover image and a button that makes the playhead jump again to display another 'random' image).
I was wondering if there is any way to reproduce this behavior not using javascript, so that if there is no fix (I'm obviously in a very tight deadline...), I can get around the problem by avoiding javascript altogether.
Thank you very much for your help!

I don't have a solution for you, but I want to compliment you for a great post. I wish others would follow your lead, and include the information about their system, the problem, the steps already taken, etc.
Have you tried creating a new project, with a new HDV sequence, and editing a short timeline as a test to see if it's a problem with that one timeline or not?
