do you actually mean a message base [line] here?

yo, in my case, though i am not totally sure, it seems, that sending
'set' messages to [partconv~] too often causes trouble. i haven't
checked the code, but i don't assume, that sending messages to [line~],
[vline~] or [line] causes spikes in the cpu usage. 

btw: is there a way to monitor the cpu usage on a linux box at a very
high rate, so that short spikes get visible? it would might help me
figuring out, if the really 'set' messages to [partconv~] are causing
