[PD] gem cpu consumption

i had some success with this problem when i didn't DRAG the Gem-window 
to the second monitor but instead set the creation arguments of the 
Gem-window to the second monitor before creating it. the problem seems 
to occur when even a small part of the Gem-window is outside the second 
monitors coordinates.

on my laptop, the display is set to 1400x1050 and the second monitor to 
800x600, so:

[offset 1401 1, dimen 798 598(
[gemwin 25]

did the trick
(i did this 1-pixel offset for stability reasons and had a black desktop 
to avoid a "wallpaper-frame")

hope this helps
