I did, Rob, in my post of 11th. Without the detail, it showed HC about 
5% faster with screen unlocked and 6x (!) faster with screen locked, 
using Pierre's code on 263 cards of 3 text fields each (RR on OSX 10.1, 
HC in Classic 9.2). 6x is a big difference but still well below Pierre's 
ratio. Pierre has since posted that referencing the cards rather than 
going to them solved his problem, so there may have been other 
differences (e.g. open/close card handlers) between his test cases, as 
otherwise I can not account for the performance ratios he obtained, 
compared with my test.
