Two conditions:

1) They have to be spawned by 'bjam.exe' executable.
2) They have to be running for more than 5 minutes or show an
   error dialog window.

How did you determine that it's build_monitor that caused all
that? While there is always a possibility of a program having bugs,
it's hard to believe that this particular one started to misbehave
all of a sudden after a year of stable work and no changes to the
source code.

I'm sorry to hear about the whole thing, but let's get to the roots
of it. First of all, why do you think it was build_monitor? Second,
what operating system are you running?
