    [bug] Particle Emitter Textures

    So I don't know how else to classify this problem, if anyone can work it out without the same problems, I'd love to know the workaround.

    First, I'm on a dual 800, with 1.2 GB RAM, so it's not that slow.
    Second, I'm in OS X.2.4, LW 7.5
    Here's the problem:
    1) Create a new scene
    2) Create a null.
    3) Open the object properties, make it an FX Emitter.
    4) Go to Motion, Vector(m/s) settings.
    5) Set the vector x/y/x to something, and click on the "T" for texture.

    At this point, my machine slows to a crawl, while the texture window opens. I left for about 20 minutes, came back and the window was open, but I had NO system response, so I couldn't change any values, I could only close the texture window. I call it a bug because if this is replicable on other systems, it's either a bug or a useless feature.

    My emitter has about 1000 particles running, which may or may not be a lot, with bounce interactions going.
