VMEmulator too fast for Pong and the like

ybakos
I've just re-run Pong via the VMEmulator on Java6 (on both OSX and Windows) and am noticing how fast the simulator runs... too fast, in fact for a live-interaction program such as Pong. This speed is being witnessed at the "slow" setting, set via the slider in the toolbar.

Just a note, in case others are witnessing the same (or different!) behavior.

A good way to slow down Pong to a playable level is to switch to the Jack/VM version of the OS code.
