Rev performance: help! (solved)

Hi, I'd like to say thanks to Dave Cragg for helping me solve this  
issue...and perhaps others might run into this too. My problem was  
actually caused by having a button's filename property set to a URL  
which was no longer available. Unfortunately there was no obvious  
error message that arose from Rev's persistent efforts to load the  
image, apparently using libURL. I will concur that it did appear to  
me that the ulTickleMe's were arriving more than once a second during  
the periods where the program was frozen the "hardest." Regardless,  
once I removed the offending reference, Rev became itself again and I  
breathed a big sigh of relief.

Thanks again to Dave for insisting that I must have had a libURL call  
in there somewhere :)

I think it's being sent more than once a second.
