Meshlight error if no mesh be found

Hello.
I'm using a meshlight with particles and when in some frames there are no particles, Arnold throws an error that at least one mesh is must be.

Mantra works great in such condition, but Arnold not. It's a bug or there is any secret trick to know?

Hi @Julian Hodgson,

the log doesn't show any specific error or I don't know how to use it properly.

HIP file attached.

Note: previous Arnold versions rendered this successfully :)
