Not necessarily anything; this should probably be modularized better
than it is.

In cocoa.lisp, there's a call:

(def-ccl-pointers create-autorelease-pool ()
  (create-autorelease-pool))

That'll create a "default" NSAutoReleasepool (sp?) object, which
is used to keep track of short-lived objects.

The short version of the story is that all of the messages are
complaining because that hasn't been done.

The longer version of the story is that we really don't want to
just let these short-lived objects collect in an autorelease-pool
forever, but the right solution may need to wait for native threads
(autorelease pools are (native-)thread-local, and odd things can
happen when non-native threads are involved.)

Back to the short version: if you create an autorelease pool before
creating any UI objects, the messages will be suppressed.
