Long-duration jitter metro: phasor~ etc vs qmetro?

    Hi,
    I'm looking to have a number of jitter pwindows displaying small movies from jit.qt.movie objects within the interface of a patch which will have to work reliably for 10 hours or so at a time.
    Thinking about this, I worry that with the conventional qmetro it is possible that I will get the sort of problems that can manifest themselves with metros etc within the Max side of things.
    I would normally think at this point to use a single phasor~ type solution to drive everything. My one concern comes with the fact that when I have done this in the past I have put the audio scheduler in overdrive - which is usually great as it gives you rock-solid timing. However, reading around here I have remembered that this prioritises audio domain processing over GUI and graphics etc... which is - in theory - opposite to what I want as I am using Jitter.
    I doubt this would be a massive problem, but I was wondering if anybody has had experience with this? Would it make a big difference if I used the phasor~ timing but turned the overdrive off? Or does overdrive not particularly effect it?
    N.B I would be displaying about 16 different small movie files, but they would be small and not processor intensive.
