Windows 7: Bubbles screensaver extremely fast

Bubbles screensaver extremely fast

I was at a store yesterday, and an HP computer (Windows 7 Home Premium, no SP1) was showing the Bubbles screensaver, but they were moving across the screen extremely fast. Here's a YouTube video that I found that's showing exactly what it was doing:


Does anybody know how to make it run like this on purpose? I figured that, if you leave it like this for a long time, it'll eventually go insane. I left my computer on overnight (12 hours) to see if I would wake up to the bubbles going crazy, but they weren't doing anything different than they normally do.

I've already seen the registry tweaks page, but there's nothing that adjusts the speed, so I'm assuming that it's just a random bug. Supposedly it happens in both Vista (including SP1) and Windows 7 (not sure if it does this on SP1).

That changes the rate at which the colors are changing, not the speed of the movement of the bubbles.

Oh well. Maybe they fixed this in SP1. A pretty funny glitch.

Got it sometimes bubbles running mad!

It does when beginning entering the screensaver allowed time, then it seems regulate itself.
