Thanks for your answer :),
I'm actually decreasing the variable i (certainly not in that piece of code that I posted for example excuse me for such example :)) ) Seems to me that in reality it takes a a lot to decrease the array, it seems that every time rebuilds the index or a sort of it.

Thanks a lot
