Deleting cards slower in distribution

Did you lock messages before deleting the cards? That would significantly speed things up...

  Subject: Deleting cards slower in distribution

  I have to delete about 150 cards in Rev (windows-vesion). I use following code:

  on delete_cards
    lock screen
    go to first card
    repeat for  (number of cards + 1)
        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 3 seconds. I also built a distribution with Metacard 2.4.3b. In this version it runs at speedy 1/4 seconds (the same as inside the Rev-IDE). Is it a known problem of the 2.4.1 engine?
