"not enough space in GDI heap" / forking vstlib programs

Hello, as I just announced I'm developing a vst-server,
that loads and runs windows vst plugins.
But after loading and unloading a lot of plugins, I get
lots of
"err:local:LOCAL_GetBlock not enough space in GDI heap 01f7 for 24 bytes"

I understand that the cause of this error is caused by a memory
leak in a windows program. However, in the vst-server, there is
no way to control memory leaks in the plug-ins, as those are made
by various groups and persons.

So is there a way around this error. Doing a fork for each new plug-in
perhaps? Is that safe? I want to do that also to avoid having a plug-in
crash the vst-server.
