And PD isn't one of them. PD's GUI has always kept one of it's feet 
permanently nailed to the floor. The problem is just exaggerated on OSX. 
Previous discussions, back when I still had time to investigate things 
like this, pointed to Aqua versions of Tcl/Tk as being a possible 
offender. I tried getting into recompiling PD against different versions 
of Tcl/Tk, but found it easier to just use the same computer running 
Linux for high-performance [PD] situations.

Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to pipe all the time people 
spend rambling about political correctness, beer, philosophy and 
theoretical physics on this list into solving basic problems like this?
