This is probably the URL package using the connection keep-alive
feature of HTTP.  So it is normal that connections remain open until
they're closed from the server side.

I think it is rather unfortunate that the user is bothered with this
implementation detail when exiting Emacs.  However, this should be
easily fixable by resetting the query-on-exit flag on idle
connections.  I'll rise this on emacs-devel.
