I need some help with fur rendering on an object that spins upside down.

I have a model of a bat complete with body and hair fur. When I spin the bat upside down so it hangs from its claws, hair on the body disappears.

I have experimented with "Use Dot" and "Dynamic Gravity" per p. 16 of the FiberFX manual with no luck. I assume I am missing something simple (?).

Attached is a proxy model and scene file where I use a capsule to simulate the bat's body.

An animation of the capsule turning upside down is here:

Any advice anyone can offer is appreciated.
