On Internet Explorer (tested version : 11), when the browser window is closed (with close button), the WApplication destructor is not called and the memory used by Wt Application is not freed.
The WApplication destructor is called correctly when Google Chrome is closed.

This is a known issue, but in the end memory will be freeed when the session times out (by default this is after 10 minutes). With some browsers, we can catch the close event, while for other browsers, we can't as there's a race condition internal in the browser between communication and closing.
