i'm not suprised by this at all. it was pretty intense to use this before
nick's changes, and i'm sure its worse now.

as i've noted several times, this was a compile-time-only experiment, and
its not code that i'm interested in at this time. we feel free to break this
mode, almost certainly have already, and almost do so again certainly will
until The Glorious Future when we move to a new Canvas widget. that is the
only way that "stationary playhead" mode is ever going to work acceptably.
