Darn.. this might be related to the trident card problem. 
This kind of problem was reported several times, but seem 
to be related to  the way MFC DLL's are handling graphic 
operations using this driver.. and it seems to be the 
driver fault, not MFC drivers fault. 

Try to install the latest version of the video card driver, 
of try to disable accelerating features in the driver, this 
may fix the problem. 

Unfortunately, I don't control the way MFC dll's are using 
drivers (or the way drivers are responding to mfc 
requests), and therefore I can hardly do anything.

Hmm.. WinME is also the OS where many problems were 
reported :(

I strongly suspect the video driver - by the way, what's 
your card vendor? (is it a trident card?)
