Wow, this doesn't sound Jabber-related at all :-)

It actually sounds like you are testing or just running on Windows 9x
(and not NT/2000), and you have found a system resource leak.

See, when you create a drawable system resource in Windows, you are
pulling that structure from a fixed-sized list. for 3.1 and 9x releases,
there is one group for the system, for NT there is a group per
application. Once you run out, applications won't be able to load the
graphics, fonts, etc they need to draw and will draw basically randomly.

The only solution I have found is 1) upgrade to NT/2000 or 2) review the
code for drawing-context leaks.
