Particle cloud not showing up in reference scene

Hey everyone.

After adding a particle cloud to my scene and then loading up a model that cross-references it, I realized that the particle cloud wasn't loading at all.

When rendering the scene itself, the particles show up, but when I render the model+xref'd scene, they don't (they don't even show up in the viewport).

I double-checked the paths and everything, but nothing's showing up.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

EDIT:
Upon further investigation, I realized that the particles *do* show up, but only after the 10th or so frame. Still any ideas why?

EDIT 2:
I just realized that this is occurring because I set "Emit Start" to -500 (just to ensure the particles are all there by the first frame). Is this the correct way of doing it, or is it because I've done it wrong that it doesn't work?
