Layer handle doesn't update correctly when time is frozen

Simply stated, if I add a layer handle it stays incomplete until I exit build mode if the option to freeze time is chosen. This could cause issues if you go ahead and use the handle anyway.

Workaround: Disable the time freeze if you are using the handles.

This may be somewhat redundant with the other topic where an invalid handle remains behind if time is frozen when a layer is deleted.

Looks like this is just a quirk with the way the engine freezes time. Nothing I can do about this, so I'll add a warning about it - but other than that this is just going to be something you have to play around.
