Particle Cache with negative start time not working?

I have a Particle Cache that just will not trigger if I put the start time to anything less than zero, say -50 or -100. It is 10000 frames long.
Any workarounds/reason it doesn't work correctly?

These options work...but don't explain your problem.
Create something that you want to use as a control.
Maybe a nurbs circle. Then connect the out rotate x (or any other attribute) of the circle into the inTime of the cache. Now you can drive your cache by animating that value on the circle directly without trying to wrap your head around offsetting/scaling your cache.
You could also use the trax editor to shift your cache around as well.
Hopefully that gets you moving again.

Thanks Ben for posting. Yeah found this tip in another post and thankfully it does work.

Surprising it doesn't work normally though, but good on a way to hear others are having the same issue and its not something else going on.

Will report it when I get a moment.
