[PD] midi input latency with Gem

Hi Max

It seems that the GUI should slow down long before the MIDI does - or  
at least that's what happens to me - so it sounds like a MIDI problem  
and not a cpu load thing.

This may be a dumb question, but is there any chance the MIDI  
signal's looping back to PD's MIDI in?  I only ask because I've  
managed to do it myself with similar results...
