The same terminal window that has your ghci in it, also has some back-end
that iHeart Radio uses running in it. When the iHeart front-end app is
opened, the back-end is issuing that message and it gets mixed in with your
ghci's output.

The session script itself doesn't tell me anything useful without also
having the saved session that it is restoring. Possibly restoring
incorrectly, where the back-end was running in a different terminal but got
grouped with the ghci incorrectly. This is one problem with trying to
impose a session "externally": it can be difficult to tie an application to
a specific window, and front-end/back-end architecture usually makes it
even more complicated; especially when the terminal is often *also*
front-end/back-end, so you really can't tell which front-end is which
because all the programs are linked to the back-end instead of to the
front-ends they are visible in.
