Basically WebKit runs in the event thread(main thread) of the porting(qt,gtk). WebKit node data structures will be created and destroyed only from the mainthread. Also WebKit's timer scheduled from the main thread. Are u running multiple instance of webview from multiple  threads? If so it shouldn't be done like tat. You can check the thread id of duration and destrutor's caller if u r not sure.
