I'm not sure what are you talking about as I never experienced this. 
Does it happen only when you run bundled app?  Does it output anything 
to the window?  BTW, could it probably be X11 window, not one from 
Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal?

This is unrelated to use of mkbundle.  The unbundled WinForms app will 
hang just like that.  To handle this you'll need support from WinForms 
or handle shutdown Apple Event manually (see AEInstallEventHandler(),

But are you really bothered by these warnings?
