Wondering how you get particles emitted at a steady/predictable rate. I have my emitter set to generate 1 particle per second, which to me would mean that one particle would be released every second (30 frames per second), so particle 1 at frame 0, particle 2 at 30, particle 3 at 60, etc. Instead, I'm getting a particle released at frames 0, 54, 61, 86, 95, 141, 165, 206, 223, etc. I'm not sure what this rate is, but it's certainly not 1 per second.

"Position Blur" (under 'etc') is set to 0%.
Nozzle is set as "Box", and the generator size is 1mm x 1mm x 1mm.

It's not the best implementation I could imagine, but it seems to be the only way(s) to do it.
