Its probably a bug in teh partical system. I've 'fixed' it by removeing
the partical loop in gl_rmain.c (at around line 628).

Now there's no sparkles, but stain maps still work and there are no... 
weird looking laser things. 

Of course the loop in question is several hundred lines long. So tracking
it down may take a while. :) And it could turn out its somethign being
called from the loop, but we'll see.
