#711 "System ressources exhausted" since rexx4 upgrade

APIs (66)

I made stress tests on my system, which is using oorexx.
I used oorexx 3.1.2 and my tests ran successfully, even if . Since I migrate to rexx4( the last beta version), a rexx error message is raised "Error 5: System resources exhausted" and my tests fails. Except the rexx upgrade, my system was the same in either case

    We're going to need a lot more information than this to debug this problem.

    To start with, what operating system are you running on? Did you completely uninstall the previous version before installing the 4.0 version? What was the program doing at the point where the error occurred and can you provide a program that will recreate the problem?

    Tests are done on WindowsXP SP2 after having un-install Rexx3

    To reproduce my issue, copy the attached file to C:\ On command line, set 'rexx entry' and write the following command:
    do ii=0 to 10000; rexx "C:\Hello.mac"; end;

    In the task manager, the number of handles grows to each call to Hello.mac !!

    (If we use the following command, we have no issue! :
    do ii=0 to 10000; call "C:\Hello.mac"; end;

    Thank you for narrowing down the symptoms so well. This made it very easy to diagnose.
