Originally, this message was about fast shutdown. An application choosing not to close all windows / WebViews before termination would emit this message, which was slightly clearer than mysterious LEAK messages.

The best way to track down this bug is probably to set a breakpoint on WebView allocation and destruction, and log backtraces.
