Every time I slide the bar on my Contact List, the Particle Emitter
animation stops, then when I stop sliding the bar, the Particle Emitter
resets itself back to the beginning location. Why not just keep them going?
I understand if AW is out of focus using a different program then it's
probably good to use the video card on that other program, but just sliding
the bars on the Tabs window isn't using another program and AW still stays
in focus.

Yeah, this is annoying especially when the emitter spawns lots of
particles out all over. When out of focus, they build up in their volume
space ignoring speed or acceleration settings, so when i return focus
they have gathered in their numbers in view, giving me slight but
annoying lag.

I think its a simple case of when the 3d stops rendering the particle timer
pauses...
