Effectively, yes.  If it is the engine, then you would assume the demo will 
carry the entity or whatever it is.

But there are too many buts.  I think this is just a local issue with the 
graphic drivers/quake2 version/time of month type thing.  Also code can 
produce some funny things once in a while no matter how many times it all 
works fine in the interim.
