If keeping the startup directory is considered a feature than I fail to
see the use case for it.

The background process are really terminated after 10 seconds. But in
the meantime, I would like to be able to release the startup directory
because it's really unrelated to the work of the running VM (no other
handle is open on that FS while the VM runs).
