My experience is the other way around : opening one of GridFlow's 
help-patch was pretty fast using my old Linux laptop, but was quite slow 
using a newer Windows laptop. I made other tests and there seems to be a 
problem finding abstractions quickly. I didn't try changing the order of 
items in «Path...» but this could be making most of the difference.

I don't know about the problem you're experiencing. You'll have to 
investigate some more to figure out what may make a patch slow.

Btw, Lorenzo is joking.
