I notice that pd is much slower now to open up patches with gops, using  
cpu at 100% sometimes for 1/2 a minute. is that normal?
after loaded, the patches run as normal. this happens since the  
colorscheme option in hcs/sys-gui was introduced (I updated after that)
I think it's related with the number of gops in the patch. I have a kind  
of small 4-voice seq utility with several gops on top of each other, and  
on xp it takes almost a minute (takes less in ubuntu)

XP, 0.40.3-extended-20080603 [with custom colorscheme, but that probably  
has nothing to do with it]

> For this release, there has been a lot of work in making the GUI and
