Yes. I've been using WB for awhile now, and I can't seem to figure out how
to free allocated memory. If I'm writing and testing a macro that allocates
space for and uses a number of variables, after awhile my system resources
get pretty low and I have to close Word and Windows, and sometimes find
that it's a good idea even to reboot.

I was using Robo this morning and noticed that after defining a number
of non-scrolling regions in one of my files (I did about 30 in a row),
I received the WB error "Too many files open. Close some files and try
again." The number of files I had open: 1 (one). My config.sys: files=100,
buffers=40, so I have plenty of room. WB (i.e. Robo) obviously wasn't
relinquishing some space.

I'm running a 486/50 with 8 megs RAM, but I don't come across these problems
too often, only when what I'm doing is very intense, and even then, only
when I've been doing it for a long time.
