BTW, IIRC, PureData's DSP compiler just relies on realloc() being really 
fast all of the time. I don't know whether there's any version of libc 
that contains an older-style realloc() that could make turning DSP on 
really slow... I haven't seen one in a long time.

If anyone can identify such a problem, I know how to fix it... it's not 
very hard.
