Yes, it's standard behavior, and in the docs. Players with alwaysBuffer 
set to true must be scripted to work, as the controller is not active in 
that case. To use the built-in controller, alwaysBuffer must be false. 
Setting it to true can also affect the playback rate. It isn't a bug, it 
is just how it works. There is more explanation in the dictionary entry 
for "alwaysBuffer".
