Yep. I remember mentioning these at the Melbourne sprint.

Hm. Is this serious enough a problem to hold off 2.3.1 until it's fixed?
My feeling is "no", because it only affects Z3 developers, and they're
hardened to random pain by now, and it's also just a shutdown glitch.
On the other hand, making the Z3 shutdown code os.kill(os.getpid(), 9)
would also make the messages go away ;)
