try these steps, as I just did a short while ago:

1. boot windows
2. run pd .38
3. press ctrl-n
4. keep it pressed as long as the number "x" increases in the
    "Untitled-x ..." title bar
5. record the last value of "x"
6. exit pd, if possible (or reboot windows)
7. run pd .37
8. repeat steps 3-5

I was able to open 41 windows in pd .38, and 152 in pd .37.
That was in pure pd.  Then I doubled the number of help submenu
entries and pd .38 would open only 23 windows.

Certainly, there are some stupid limits, although I have no idea
what imposes them.  However, having hundreds of help files listed
in a single menu, which barely scrolls in wish.exe, and does not
scroll at all under linux, seems absurd, anyway.
