Hi Jean-Marc
Here is an example that shows the issue.
p = {{0, 0, 3 Sqrt[6]}, {-2 Sqrt[3], -6, -Sqrt[6]}, {-2 Sqrt[3],
6, -Sqrt[6]}, {4 Sqrt[3], 0, -Sqrt[6]}}
Graphics3D[{{Line[{p[[1]], p[[2]]}], Line[{p[[1]], p[[3]]}],
Line[{p[[1]], p[[4]]}], Line[{p[[2]], p[[3]]}],
Line[{p[[2]], p[[4]]}], Line[{p[[3]], p[[4]]}]}}]
The very first time this is evaluated after starting up Mathematica, it is
static but all subsequent evaluations, for example, with a change of one of
the lines, are then immediately dynamic. That is, animation starts as soon
as the expression is re-evaluated. Moreover if I make a change in the
expression and re-evaluate it, the graphic animation continues from the last
position it reached and not from the initial position set by the expression
re-evaluation.
What I am looking for is a switch to simply say that for this particular
object animation should not be undertaken.

I think it is related to this in some way. These are great new capabilities
but it is not obvious to me how I can switch them on and off.
Thanks for taking an interest in the issue.
best regards,
Brian
