Yep. It may not be of much consequence under Linux but the warning is there for a reason. IIRC applications can crash on Mac when OpenGL contexts aren't set to be shared.

Of course it's probably complete overkill that daemon processes would initialise a resource hog like QtWebEngine instead of using the much more appropriate QtWebKit but I'm afraid the powers have decided they wish to ignore that.
