I suspect this has something to do with the fact that the event player 
emulates the cursor while the colour-picker uses the real cursor, hence 
it comes to standstill awaiting real user input. Tricky interactions 
going on.

Also, have you noticed you have to close the painter before ending the 
recording otherwise the painter gets thrown out to the desktop. 
Thereafter, until you close the painter (which in my case was hidden 
behind the event-theatre) playback fails to open it. There can only be 
one painter open at any time.
