Hmm. I'm pretty sure AA modes 1 & 2 stop working completely after frame 
2 or 3. It's running, but it doesn't do anything after a while because 
the internal box sizes shrink on every recursion and never get reset.

Yes, this seems to be a problem more so on windows than unix/linux but 
it happens there too sometimes. There is I believe a github issue open 
on the problem. Little bells... I 'think' more often with SDL1.2 than 
SDL2.0/X11 an on unix/linux the preview window needs to be in 'focus' / 
active.

With the povr branch I broke out the cylic control as it's own thing and 
the default is to run through the cameras only once. Also means +kla / 
clockless_animation now means 'clockless animation' and not 'cylic 
clockless animation'.

// Use +kc (Cyclic_Animation=true) for cylic / continuous renders
// looping through cameras.
