Flash is the correct tool (kind of).
I haven't found anything better at this than Robo -Demo. We have numerous "Movies" on-line. A 6 minute flash movie will run over even the slowest dial-up and comes in at under 100k per minute for 800x600 software demos. You can add voice, but it really pumps up the file size. (around 20k per sec)

I've been charged with creating a Flash-based tutorial that will include
some video capture of events onscreen (application window, cursor moves,
menu opens, etc.). Essentially what I want is something like this:

When I create an AVI or other video capure file, it is huge (~1MB) and
makes the resulting Flash SWF file enormous.

Any suggestions on how to tackle this task/problem? It has been slow going
so far. I wonder if Flash is even the correct tool for this.
