I have experienced this problem in every version of Windows (with the 
personal exception of W2k so far...), including W3.1, W95, NT3.51 and NT 
4,. with and without any or all service packs installed. I believe that it 
is due an insufficient resource problem (not just total memory). Some 
windows resources appear to be non-recoverable, ie, once used, they're gone 
til reboot, it's just been so long since I've worried about tit that I 
can't even remember which resources they were...

FWIW, I always suspected that my Diamond video cards or their enhanced 
driver software played a part in creating the problem, but I haven't any 
definite proof to that effect...
