Hi Gerd,

that's great!

wow, that's more improvement than I expected.

You are a quadtree guy.
In this case I thinks it's more irritating and complex to split the area 
into four subareas. I've changed that to split into two subareas and the 
code is now much easier to read (I think so..?!?) and performs in 
similar speed.
