Just out of curiosity why would the aperture matter for a particle on the sensor. I can understand how it affects the lens but it seems to me a spot on the sensor would look the same regardless of aperture.

If the particles were actually on the sensor itself, you would have a point...aperture wouldn't matter as much.

But the particles are on the AA filter which is a bit above the sensor, so the rays of light can fill in the shadow behind the particle at wide apertures.
