The loop ends because erasing the window clears the erase bits.
Unfortunately in that case the app does a RedrawWindow(RDW_ERASE)
inside the WM_ERASEBKGND handler, so the window is marked as needing
erase again. The algorithm will probably need to be changed, but the
first step would be to write a test case and see how Windows behaves
in that case.
