Robert Hoehne,
I think this problem is caused by the fact that RHIDE continuously is
calling the DPMI service for determining the amount of free memory when
it is idle. Adding a __dpmi_yield after doing this will probably solve
this problem, but there may be also a hatch: I think only DPMI 1.0
offers this service.
