Ah - I just noticed today that menus on Win98 are using the wrong font.

Leaks on exit are fine on Win9x.

I'm also seeing lots of other glitches on WinXP and Win98 such as windows
created outside their parents, etc., rendering problems, windows not getting
erased and sometimes wrong font selected.
