Not sure if this is related, but I occasionally see that TBB doesn't
completely exit when I close it down (running on Linux).

Doesn't seem to matter whether I close the window, File->Quit or
CTRL-Q. Also doesn't appear to depend on how long TBB has been running
or how many windows I have had open.

It does seem to depend on how many different sites I've been to, so I'm
leaning towards something going slightly haywire based on a site I'm
visiting, but have never been able to figure out what or which. I end up
using ps or lsof to find the PID and then just kill it. Has been going
on for a long time over many major releases, but I've never had enough
information to log a ticket.
