HI Adam

Simply configurethe geometry to
in order to deactivate the display list generation

Also, I think you don't have to use setVertexArray, as long as you keep 
the array as a pointer. (@Robert, is the data actually copied?)

> I created a callback class inherting from osg::Drawable::UpdateCallback, that gets called each frame, I perform my logic and then re-use the same osg::Vec3Array and just update it per frame and then reset the drawable with:
> osg::Geometry* geometryNode = drawable->asGeometry();
> geometryNode ->setVertexArray(rainState->vertices);
> Unfortunately this setVertexArray is killing my framerate from 98 to 78. All this does is make the Drawable::draw() function make a new display list, do the draw functions and finish.
