To understant, a patch snip: i've taken a quick look to the code and i see no problem however why not create an "opencl_init2" so people can choose to use it and test it and if it's all good we all switch to this new interface ? In this way we keep "backward compatibility" with the old interface while letting people to try and test it . Cheers Samuele
