Performance Stutters

Hi, I've been playing steel beasts for a couple days on a 30-day license.  I've noticed periodic performance stutters, perhaps every few minutes, with things freezing for 1-2 seconds.  I've tried windowed, full screen, and windowed forced to full.  I've also shut down a bunch of background programs with no joy.  Using the debug tool, I see that the lag always occurs after WM_ACTIVATEAPP: 0x0 in the log.  Any thoughts?

Writing the AAR data to disk is done in a separate thread, so it "shouldn't" create a noticeable problem. But if it happens in regular intervals no matter what you do, that's still what I'd suspect first.

If it happens whenever you move the free-flight camera at or near top speed, it might be a matter of the terrain paging. That "should" also not happen, but depending on the amount of available video RAM, well, it might.
