>>   repeat for  (number of cards + 1)
>>     try
>>       delete this card
>>     end try
>>     go previous card
>>   end repeat
>>   unlock screen
>> end delete_cards

>> When I execute this code inside the IDE of Rev, it takes about 1/4 sec. 
>> After building a distribution for Windows, the same code executes in about
