I think this is because of the traceDelay. When you are debugging, every
step includes a pause equivalent to the traceDelay setting. When you
"run", the engine goes back to full speed.

I believe this behavior is intentional. The assumption is that during
debugging you always want to see what is happening. There have been
innumerable instances where I was happy it worked that way, because I
could see the screen change during debugging without altering my code
