Oh thanks, I'll try that out and let you know what I find out.

Yes I am.

This is not the case. I eliminated all the GUI and the problem persists.
There is really nothing "going on" in the patch except the oscillator
playing a 500Hz sinusoid.
Everything else is idle (I mean doing nothing) as far as it depends on me.
Nothing is generating messages. Things are just there, and
abstraction/subpatches containing dsp stuff are all switched off.
If PD is doing something it is doing it on its own initiative.

Yes you're perfectly right.
Thanks for the advice.
