It is on iOS. Turning it on and off as needed has worked perfectly, so it is no problem. Thanks for explaining!

> I'm not sure that's to do with any resource stealing - it's more to do with the fact that the mobile OSes don't like mixing OpenGL based views with non-OpenGL based views generally. You can limit the amount of texture RAM accelRendering uses by setting the compositorCacheLimit (I think that's the right property) which is the maximum number of bytes the engine will use for the cache of tiles at any one time.
