Billboard chains were always updating their vertex buffers in notifyCurrentCamera. This was unecessary work and could actually cause visual problems. The contents of the vertex buffer could be changed to be rendered from the shadow camera while the billboard chain was queued for rendering.

This patch is based off of masterfalcon's patch from this thread:
