Well, the graph ought to be recompiled always on deletion like it ought to
be recompiled always on creation. However, for creation, if you skip
recompilation, all you get is that the new objects have dsp off while the
old objects have dsp on. Whereas for deletion, if you skip recompilation,
then there are deleted objects that have dsp on, and that causes a crash
because pd tries to use a dead object.
To get out of this, you'd need a dsp compiler that could setup the output
of the compilation so that it becomes modifiable at runtime, or so that it
is broken down into pieces that are not too big, in both cases to make
recompilation take less time.
In any case, if anything like that takes as much as 100 ms, perhaps there
are some dsp-methods involved that do too much stuff during the
How many dsp-objects do you have at once, in your patch ?
Then, I also know of a problem in the dsp_add command, that causes it to
display O(n^2) behaviour sometimes, but only sometimes. It's really
abusing resizebytes() (that is, realloc()).
