We had some trouble with outlook crashes in the last weeks and didn't know why.
Now we have seen, that outlook crashes, because there are 10k+ USER handles opened, most of them GDI handles.

We did some research in our code and with dummy addins and found out, that any ADX-Region leak GDI objects.
A blank add in with just one region leaks one GDI object.
The Dispose-Method of the region is called, but it seems to ignore the GDI objects.

To reproduce this crash, you can write an auto-it script, which cause outlook to open new inspectors (with a region inside) and close them again, if they are loaded completely. This should be looped about 20k times.
