More notes.

I've found an old newsgroup thread that describes something I'm seeing in debugging, though it doesn't suggest a real cause or a _great_ solution, and their retry workaround doesn't work for me.

That thread seems to be talking about an occasional failure, whereas from what you describe once it fails it keeps failing.

I still think a clipping region problem sounds more likely.

I've made a change that may possibly help. When you do a CreateWindow you now get a new device context. This should discard anything that has been corrupted in the earlier one.

See http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=13903 for how to grab a copy of the new version of the executable.

Please let me know if this fixes the problem or not.

Change details here:

Seems good for me so far. I'm still waiting to hear back from some other players.
