Interesting problem, indeed. I will need to take a deeper look at
this. Anyway I now tried another thing which both made another
(although only a small) speedup as well as fix the display: I change
the links from being an array inside the model to being single data
structure object. This makes the [traverse X, next( messages hit the
wrong object for the masses, so I changed how they gat their pointers,
too. My changes are in [pd structure] and in mass-setter/link-setter.
You will probably spot them easily, I added comments.
