Also bear in mind that the trimming of weak listeners is extremely slow as it has to iterate through each listener performing the weak listener test. We can't call this every time we add a listener as this would lock up the JavaFX thread completely (I tried it). 
I assume this is why the original calculation was used where it backs of the rate the weak listener trimming code was called as the array list grew.
