This isn't really a question about learning Python so probably would be 
better on the main Python mailing list.

However it will help if you specify things like the OS, the Python 
version. Also be clear about what exactly you mean by process handles 
and GDI objects. I'm guessing you are talking about Windows but I can't 
be sure.

I imagine that means you are creating a test lop that creates and 
releases these handles? How do you get a handle? can you store it as a 
variable? can you print it? can you create a string and print that?

Sorry I can't be of more help but that's a fairly open question
about a very specific problem.
