Great. Where can I find the code for this and how is it enabled?
Is there any documentation of that feature?

I don't understand this. It should definitely not crash. (It might (but
should not) leak resources however...)

For sure.

Where can I find this? I would be very much interested. Never seen that.

Beside my interest for all the above, my webapp has a plugin mechanism that
also has to be able unload plugins, so I am working on code to make that
really happen. Relying on these plugins developers is not that good idea.
BTW: I am also planning on deadlock detection and on restarting blocking
