    Every time I open a certain patch with a "gen ~" object and two objects more, I do not add anything and I save exactly the same maxpat (with another name) the size of the patch approximately doubles. The next time I open it, it takes exactly twice as much time ...

      @11OLSEN There were two problems in that patch .. One in particular with a Textbutton which changed a text by a pair of unicode characters. This did not surprise me so much, I once had problems with styles and text buttons. What surprised me was a comment (gen ~ codebox) in which I converted this "// like goertzel ~" into a long string of characters "unicode that I get to, I do not lie: 20000000 of crap. That part of the code will crash Max. It seemed like a sort of "leak" and the crash happened in the LUA libraries that I suppose uses gen ...
      A nuisance, this mistake, wasted a lot of time.
