I don't know anything about Windows, but I did take a peek at the

It has a corresponding endPrint() method which calls EndDoc.
I browsed some Windows API documentation online and it would
seem that you actually need to pass a printer hDC, not a screen
hDC (which is what GR_Win32Graphics would have on hand). Perhaps
someone could look into that?
At some point in ap_Win32DlgPrint, we do actually create a
printer hDC, but it doesn't escape. Apparently it's just used
for querying properties. Perhaps we should have such an hDC
for StartDoc as well.
