It crashed because I didn't initialize my instance the same way (i.e. no 0 
default initialization). Anyway it's fixed (here).

To reduce the overhead of redrawing, I putted a 10 ms delay before redrawing 
when I get a new character, which is reset at each new character. A user 
wouldn't notice the delay and it fixed the "overload" problem easily.

But that is still a good idea that you had.
