Well it depends. On Linux it is considered nice, but optional, to release system resources before process termination. The OS is responsible for handling that if the process does not. The original reported problem here seems to be a bug with some graphics driver not doing that. We definitely do not need to support broken drivers, at least not upstream. The driver needs to be fixed.

Now, we really do need to finalize the SoupSession, but we already do that now (bug #166029) and that doesn't affect macOS at all.
