Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-01 17:59:22 UTC
Threadpools thread have an autorelease pool in order to suppress the "just leaking" messages. However, if those autorelease pools are not drained, they will be effectively leaking silently. Since most users won't be aware they need to drain the autorelease pools, the threadpool should drain them periodically.

We're already doing this. Threadpool autorelease pools are drained for every work item processed.
