The warning got more "correct" with:

commit e73cf1a7b2ce72d488afef8083b933c9fb6ebc36

    Make -ddebug-gc-object-lifetimes more robust

and now warns if any object is leaked. Before only one object was
reported per smob type and it was basically luck if that was ignored
because of the session or reported as "should be dead". The problem is
tracked at and there
Han-Wen found that objects are reported this way if the first file of a
forked process contains variables. My understanding is that this issue
exists since the introduction of sessions, the only thing that changed
is that it now gets properly reported.
