There are a few bugs where LibreOffice hits the limit for Windows GDI handles. Let's collect them here, maybe the approach to fixing them can be shared to some extent.

GDI handle usage can be checked with this tool:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/gdi_handles.html

As a partial workaround, GDI limit can be increased with the following registry setting:
