still, when in debug, if i do , say search, 1 or 2 second may lapse before
the search windows get focus. any idea about that ?

i m trying to assess it its:
    - tk (gs is tk based, is it ?)
    -gs
    -erlang , or func approach to that

im too newby to get the point the about that.

mnesia has proven that func language can be efficient for side effect.
so now, i to to understand why graphical side effect are not efficient.
