you mean like when the widgets stop updating graphically (numbox moves the value but doesnt reflect the changes in the GUI) or something else?

it works better than iemgui for effiiency since you can just send over values, instead of drawing instructions which are often 4x as long. 

as long as you stay within the socket bandwidth limit, i found win32 was the best performer. i mean a scrolling full color 25fps spectrogram was using 2% total CPU, if the task manager is to be believed, on a lowly single-core 2ghz amd64. the same patch on linux has pd and X eaech using like 20% CPU, if top can be believed :/

i'd agree Toxy is pretty nice - its the best youre going to get with the old pd-gui - you get constructors, destructors, all of Tk, and you dont have to know/care how nastily the rest of the GUI is implemented :)
