I can see the screensaver thread being deliberately throttled so other functions can be prioritized. Although, if that's correct, I'd agree that if nothing else was happening, the screensaver thread might as well get top priority.
I realize that, but I would assume pretty much nothing is running during a "preview" or while the UI is sitting at the top level channel menu. It's pretty frustrating. I spent a lot of time on this only to find it's pretty much useless when changed to a screensaver.
