I just changed from a Logitech bus mouse over to a Microsoft serial mouse,
and I now get the following GPF in Win 3.1 when starting MMA 2.1 for

Growstub caused a General Protection Fault in module GDI.EXE at 0001:4521

Can anyone help me figure out this problem.  Perhaps someone has encountered
this problem when using the Microsoft serial mouse and already figured a
workaround.  Do I need to be concerned about the integrity of anything
generated by MMA 2.1, since if I accept this the program launches anyways.

O, by the way, I am running DOS 5 and Win 3.1 on a 486/66 with 16mb ram
