Overwolf_Terminate_Manager[PID] handle should release on quit

Every time Overwolf/CurseForge starts up, it creates a new Overwolf_Terminate_Manager[PID] handle (replace [PID] with the PID of the process Overwolf is hooking into) and does not release it upon quitting Overwolf. Screenshot attached after restarting Overwolf about half a dozen times.

    I can confirm this is still happening with the following OW/CF versions:

    • Overwolf: 0.157.2.17

    • CurseForge: 0.0.36

    I used the following tools to identify the event handles:

    1) Sysinternals Handle

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/handle

    With Overwolf/CurseForge closed, handle.exe -a Overwolf

    2) Sysinternals Process Explorer

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/process-explorer

    With Overwolf/CurseForge closed, open Process Explorer, Find->Find Handle or DLL..., Overwolf

    We will try to reproduce, and if not might get back to you for more information.
