Aside from a certain concern about your longevity if such is your CV,
I think that's a quite different effect -- the cause of that is that
rotary controls have a centre, so that if your hand moves
involuntarily the control won't jump -- you'll just try to push it
into a different place, which will do nothing unless the axle breaks.

Real faders also move in a relative way; you can't instantly move them
to wherever your hand happens to be. It's just that you can push them
much more quickly with an involuntary motion. The absolute vs
relative thing I think is entirely a computer phenomenon.
