Synopsis: [er] EiffelStudio using a lot of GDI objects

It happened already 2 or 3 times to me this week that EiffelStudio started to behave funny, with the widgets blinking and not refreshing correctly.
The Task Manager indicated that EiffelStudio was using almost 10,000 GDI objects.
Apparently EiffelStudio does not release these GDI objects correctly. Probably a problem with the `dispose' routines or the GC.
The only way to get out of this situation is to kill EiffelStudio in the Task Manager and restart it.
