Note that in a running patch, even non-visible GUI objects can slow down
Pd! For example if you use this: 

 [select ...]
 [random 10]

it's much faster than this: 
 [select ...]
 [bng] <-- GUI bang
 [random 10]

even when hidden somewhere deep in an abstraction. Same for floatatoms
etc. If you use them for debugging purposes, it's good to disconnect
or delete them for the final version of an abstraction.
