This could be DERBY-2905.

> SEVERE: The web application [/MyApp] created a ThreadLocal with key of type [org.apache.derby.iapi.sql.dictionary.TableDescriptor$1]
(value [org.apache.derby.iapi.sql.dictionary.TableDescriptor$1@d133a3]) and a value of type
[java.util.WeakHashMap] (value [{={1, 2, 3, 4}, =null, =null}]) but failed to remove it when
the web application was stopped. This is very likely to create a memory leak.

The Derby engine uses a thread local variable
TableDescriptor#referencedColumnMap, which contains a weak hash map
object. It seems the weak hash map object is still there when Derby has
shut down. Since it's weak (referenced objects will be garbage collected
once Derby has shut down) it is not likely to cause much of a memory
leak, but I'll file a bug for this.
