Clones on a growing path flickering

I have a Mospline object that's copying a linear spline. It's growing 0-100% over 30 frames.
There is an Object Cloner using the Mospline as a shape.
I have Rate turned on for the Object Cloner so it's animating clones along that path.
But as the path is growing (frame 0~30), there's this weird flickering and pausing of the flow of clones. It doesn't fix itself until the Mospline End property is near 100%

Is there any way to fix this strangeness during the Mospline growth animation?

...might just have to adjust the keyframes on the plain effector so its timed better with the cloner rate
