We have a few Win32 applications (coded in Delphi 2006) where sometimes the user gets an error message saying "System Error. Code: 8. Not enough storage is available to process this command.".
From the stacktrace it looks like it is always during CreateWnd call

I've never been able to get to the bottom of what causes this and as it happens fairly seldom I haven't been to concerned, but I would like to find out what causes it and hopefully rectify it…
EDIT: Full Stacktrace
EDIT 2: More info… The client who experienced this today has had my app installed for about 4 months and it is running on his PC 8 hours a day. The problem only appeared today and kept reappearing even though he killed my app and restarted it. None of the other apps on his system behaved strangely. After a reboot the problem goes away completely. Does this point towards the heap shortage that Steve mentions?
