Yeah, I searched a bit before I posted here and noticed the 'humid smell' questions too. I also suspect it has something to do with emissions. It would make some oddball 'greenwash' sense to have the compressor kick-off at idle to conserve fuel, but at the expense of safety? It's pretty stupid if you ask me....
