As of now it seems that every Direct2D call causes at least Word to crash.

Steps to reproduce the crash:

- Open a new Word document
- Use the headline template
- write two or more headlines
- the application will crash while attempting to call an Direct2D Function

for example:

Backtrace:
=>0 0x7a9d03a3 in dwrite (+0x303a3) (0x0032e218)
1 0x7a9d0da6 in dwrite (+0x30da5) (0x0032e258)
2 0x7a9cac87 in dwrite (+0x2ac86) (0x0032e2c8)

dwrite is the DirectWrite Function implemented in Direct2D.
