Nikolas BäurleProblem with Particle Trail and Short Motion Path

I built a short logo animation last night, just for practice.

I made a particle emitter from a circle with a scale over life behaviour , and attached it to a motion path, that circles around in the middle. The project is 400 frames long, and I left all the elements in that length during the building process.

The moment I shorten the motion path to under 100 frames the motion path starts turning into an octagon, even if I increase birthrate...

My solution to this was simply to make the animation longer and speed it up in Final Cut.

Is there another solution to this? What am I doing wrong?
