    This is probably not what the OP had in mind, but I might mention that I've seen situations where autoreleases associated with NSOperationQueues and GCD queues have still been outstanding five minutes later under conditions of extremely high load. (My suspicion is that a mouse click or other user event causes these to be carried out, but I didn't test that one systematically).
