i changed the PD_BADFLOAT macro to detect small, almost denormal
numbers (devel_0_37 branch).
i had 3 evenings of several hours of performance without cpu spikes ...
and i'd be interested if it works ok for you...

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!"
