Issue description
I'm using the developement snapshot package from the homepage.

While rendering an animation to cairopng frames I fiddled around with the character I was working on and synfig used the new positions mid render, messing up the whole thing instead of rendering only the state of the file when the render job was started.

I don't know if this also applies to other rendering outputs since I cannot use them since synfig doesn't render parts of the figure unless I use cairo...

( I tried both Slackware 14.1 and Fedora 20 with up to date packages, and the standard renderer is not able to render anything more than the legs, the rest gets hidden in the final render as well as the navigator pane, while the workspace only misses the bottom of the pants and some other bits in both distros. Rendering generates a lot of output about if the bounding box has shrunk, and other things but that's another bug report, I just include this here to explain why I can't test for any other formats.)
Steps to reproduce this issue
Create a simple animation of sufficient length for the renderer to be busy for a while. Save animation and start the render job. While it renders skip ahead in the timeline and fiddle with the shapes.

Synfig will use the new values of the objects when the render job reaches the modified frames.
