When a client "rudely" disconnects from a service hooked up via webHttpBinding (with streaming enabled), HttpListener throws an unhandled exception that takes the process down (when self-hosting). This is a fairly frequent occurrence in the real world- clients "hang up" on the server all the time... The only way I'm currently able to safely self-host is by enabling the legacy 1.1 unhandled exception backstop in config- obviously not ideal. The WebHttp-registered completion handler should handle the exception internally.
