This isn't the same case at all.  In fact, if you change the buffer attribute, what happens?  Does it reset?  I would not think this would make a change.

I tested, and Blink does in fact maintain phase across this change, and the more I've thought about, the more I believe that is exactly the right thing to do.  Otherwise, you have no idea what phase the oscillator is in anymore.
