Only crashes associated with 10 000 GDI handles (e.g., indicated by the crash report's GDIHandles on Metadata page, see e.g. https://crashreport.libreoffice.org/stats/crash_details/a443cb17-5ff7-49f9-a153-6b638733fb78), or otherwise confirmed that are caused by GDI handle leaks, are eligible for this META. Please do not add just anything having keyword GDI.
