I've been thinking about this.

After chasing it around for a while, I've realized I might be going
about tracking it down the wrong way.

It seems to only happen after a level change. Or 2 after my last round
of hacking. This would suggest that we're running into an uninitialized
variable of some sort when the level loads.

I'm not sure what state the particle system is left in as levels change,
but we might want to look into a way to making it reinitialze itself
between maps.

Sorry if I'm rambling, I just wanted to get this thought out while I had
time so i didnt forget it.

Anyone think this is a worthwhile direction to move in?
