Ants should halt when PDN loses focus

When PDN loses focus it should stop doing any animation. This includes the marching ants and pulsing nubs.

Reasons for this include that it is distracting to have an inactive program making changes on the screen (as peripheral receptors in the eye are very good at detecting movement). It is also a visual cue that the program is inactive. Also, an inactive program should not consume CPU time, for UI type activities.
