If two instances of Mozilla are open by two different users logged into XP, and
the system suspends for a length of time, when XP comes back to life, one will
get a whole series of "Value creation failed." dialogs, and a system low on GDI

The window frame around Mozilla most likely will be absent. Random GDI resources
will be missing.. icons, bitmaps, etc. throughout windows.

This happens with Mozilla instances or a combination of Mozilla and Firefox, so
its most likely shared code.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In XP Pro, open an instance of Mozilla 1.7.1 or Firefox 0.9 (mix and match if
you like) in two seperate accounts
2. Set both instances to (it auto-refreshes every so often and
may be part of the problem)
3. Let the system sit and suspend. (go away for a half a day)
4. Log back in to the last active account and you should immediately see the
"Value creation failed." dialogs.
5. Hit okay on them... about 10-15 I think.
6. Notice how Mozilla and the rest of Windows is painting.
