comment TikZ: compilation time performance of decorations
Thank you once again. I hope I can soon find the time to use your code for my old molecule-drawing program.

...But what does the second line do? Does it set the value of \pgf@xd to the product of \pgfdecorationstartby and \pgf@xe and analoguously the value of \pgf@xe to \pgfdecorationendby time \pgf@xe? Or do I have that completely wrong?

comment TikZ: compilation time performance of decorations
I hope you could help me understand some part of your code better: Your definition of \pgfshadepath@revise is beyond me but I feel like I should be able to understand the rest. Yet the first three line \state{draw} block of the cylinder decoration (those that deal with \pgf@xe, \pgf@xd, and \pgf@yd) are a bit unclear to me. The first and third lines seem to set the values for \pgf@xe and \pgf@yd to \pgfdecorationsegmentamplitude in units of pt, right? ...

Wow, after such a long time I hadn't expected to get such an awesome answer to this question. You did much more than I actually asked for. Thank you very much.

Thanks for that too. I've noticed earlier that the Windows version seems to have some issues. I ran into a lot of memory problems with it where the linux version works just fine. But the solution for me seems simple: use linux :)

I just installed Asymptote 2.32 (the most recent Windows version I could find) on my computer. It shows the same result: Doesn't work with my original code but works with your code snippet included.

By the way, do you happen to know if there is a way to combine the two surfaces into one object? Because right now the transparancy doesn't look good with the two surfaces handled seperately.

Thank you very much for looking into my problem and your answer. Your code snippet works (after I corrected some typos). Sorry for not providing information about my system and Asymptote version. I work on a Windows 7 (64bit) system with Asymptote 2.29.
