Yes, I tested it... basically you don't start it with a click... you have to
send it the startRolling message first, and then you can click to pause and
click to resume. Works until the scrolling is done and it fades out.

I hope it's some typo or glitch on your end, otherwise we're going to have
to share Rev/machine specs to track this down... :-)
