I was not loading the hexloader, but it seems libdir is the culprit 
(or is this the same? - i've been reading some stuff in the archives, 
but i find it quite confusing and might be missing some bits).
When i remove all other libraries except libdir from startup, the 
patches still load so slow. when i remove just libdir, they open 
immediately, but then the other externals don't get loaded 
automatically anymore..
i can live with it that way, but it ould be nice if it worked some 
time in the future..
