Pflow crashing a LOT with mParticles

Just checking in if the (relatively) new implemented mParticles just seem to be so buggy to me or if I´m doin something wrong.
And by buggy I mean: remove an operator, scrub, crash.
Turn off an operator, scrub, crash.
And so on...
Haven´t thoroughly tested what exactly keeps crashing my mParticles setups, but if you have experienced similar problems or even have some advice, I´d very much appreciated.
Just trying to get some work done here ad it´s really frustrating...

...might have to do with the cache disk operator. Sometimes it immediately crashes if I just click on it...

2013 is an insult to the user base. i would either upgrade to 2014 or stick with 2012 when it was an external plugin.

Yeah...can´t switch right now, since we are in the middle of a production...:(

If you are working on a large particle system, especially is it's a mParticles system, and you are in the middle of your timeline, moving backwards can potentially cause a crash since it's trying to calculate everything from the beginning to that point all at once, never a good idea to scrub backwards in particle flow...
