SetSystemCursor usage

I am using the SetSystemCursor() API function to change my system cursors in Win95 on the fly.  The function succeeds for the range of all system curors (program loop) and the cursors seem to change okay.  After a couple of mouse clicks, my system locks up (aside from mouse movement).  Is there anything which needs to be done with this call to prevent a system from locking up?

Make sure that you donot have any resource leaks when deallocating a cursor from memory. If your system finds resource leaks like cursor (which are system critical) and there is no more memory to allocate, wierd results often are the symptoms. If u have a package like Boundchecker handy use it. It gives you a list of resources you program has leaked as well as the memory your program has lost.

I am merely using a LoadCursor()/SetSystemCursor() set of calls, so I don't know how anything could be leaking.  I will run w/ BoundsChecker.  Thanks.
