not sure if gem is so problematic (I only use it sporadically) - there was
a compatibility issue with 32b build on windows (which can kind of be
solved), but maybe I'm not following what happens on other OSs.
If you need to interact with scalars, then data-s would be helpful.
Sometimes some bugs in tcl/tk happen, and pd has to be restarted.

(I have here a patch with more than 33548 scalars, and that window does
take lots of time to open.)
