    Some days ago you proposed the above workaround for slow initialization of
    canvases. I have also found that this speeds up the process of drawing the
    canvas the first time.

    However, there is a drawback. I realized that the counter class uses this idle
    delta to determine the repetition speed when you press one of the arrows. That
    is, with idle delta=0 the counter reacts many times on one mouse-press (several
    hundreds), and consequently the workaround may not be a good idea.

    Is there another workaround or a workaround for this workaround?
