That's good news.  I've found a slightly better patch that seems  to
remove that error too, but I won't be able to upload a binary build
that incorporates it for a few days.  I'm not sure if I can even get a
connection to commit the patch to the source tree.

The new patch releases the resources after each resize attempt, rather
than waiting until the end, so you aren't likely to run out no matter
how much you try.
