Yes, that's what I think Lennart was suggesting.

It certainly doesn't look like such.

I don't think the problem was related to WM_CLOSE. What you suggested
is much more likely: a memory leak. Windows tends to be *extremely*
unresponsive on low-memory situations.

My answering to Lennart is because he's trying to hack around a
probable bug by pushing for a half-cooked idea, when a combination of
(the Windows equivalent of) kill -9 and gdb would be more appropriate
