Thanks Benoit,

yes, it's what I will make. Now the question is: which is the right
moment in which to turn a vertex color from black to white, without to
risk to distort the sense of the Dijkstra's algorithm? I've tried a pair
of strategies, but I must think a little on the question...

I would want to be sure to avoid unexplored paths or to create
situations of inconsistent vertex states.

I hope to post a solution soon...
