NullReferenceException in Windows.FormsUnsafeNativeMethods.CallWindowProc in .NET 1.1

I have a stack trace of a NullReferenceException and the only code in the
stack trace is from System.Window.Forms.

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an
object.
at System.Windows.Forms.UnsafeNativeMethods.CallWindowProc(IntPtr
wndProc, IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam)
at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.DefWndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.Control.DefWndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmUpdateUIState(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.ScrollableControl.WndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.ContainerControl.WndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.ParkingWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg,
IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

Can someone tell me how this can happen? Also, how can a PInvoke method
such as CallWindowProc ever raise this exception? One of our employees ran
into this using Windows XP embedded in a production facility. I can't be
sure of what was happening exactly when this occurred. Such exceptions are
automatically sent to me via email when they occur.

Thanks,
Stan

Check you are disposing all forms that you open in the application after
they are closed.

Also, how can a PInvoke method

I always include form constructions in "using" statements such as:

using (Form frm = new Form()) {
}

As such, I believe they are always being disposed immediately after use.
