Build 1999082513M10: Win32/NT4

Overview: Start Mail, use the Alt-Tab keys to see what applications are present
and notice that there are about 16 instances of Mail. Looks strange.

Step to Reproduce:
1. Start Mail
2. Select the Alt-tab keys and keep them pressed. Count how many Mail instances
are present.
3. With the Alt key pressed, tab to one of the Mail instances and let go of both
keys. It should switch to a Mail window.
4. Now select the Alt-tab again and count how many Mail instances are present.

Actual Results: In step #2 I see about 16 instances of Mail. In step#4 I see 2
instances of mail where one window is "Messenger" and the second is "hidden -
Mozilla".
Expected Results: I expected to see only 1 instance of Mail called "Messenger.

Other Platforms/Versions:
- Using 8/26M10 build: On Esther's Win98 system the problem was reproduced.
- Using 8/24M9 build" The problem does not occur.
This isn't a specific Mail problem. Start Apprunner, Alt-tab and many instances
of the browser appears.
