How long is ``quite a while'', and how many GDI object did you see
used by explorer in the Task Manager?

Anyway, AFAIK there's no relation between GDI objects usage and
inability of start-process to run the program.

problem with resource depletion.  But I didn't try to run explorer
from Emacs, either.
