Go into task manager. Go to the processes tab. On the menu go to
View/Select columns. Check on "USER objects" and "GDI objects". The
GDI count is probably really high for those apps. I personally
experienced that if Mozilla 1.5 got over 1000 GDI object it would quit
refreshing its own screen. I haven't got to test that with 1.6 yet. As
far as I know you'll just have to exit & relaunch, and report it as a
resource leak to the program authors.
