Quickreport sat over that class as well - is that now broken too?

Please restore the functionality or I will back out the patch until it is completed in it's entirety.

You complain about the work that led to significant speed increase from the original code, but at least we busted a gut to make sure it didn't break any existing functionality.

Like I said, I'll look at this. I didn't grok that the failed attempt you mentioned was only a minor rejig.

Well, anybody not knowing how to code a virtual ListView shouldn't start
  on that...

It wasn't removed explicitely, but the underlying class that didn't meet 
the requirement was backed out. You've painted the wall before 
wallpapering it.

It's not a problem of the factories, they do what they should and will 
work *if used*. But you basically circumvented them, and did all the
