So, in summary, once onaudioprocess is set and the ScriptProcessorNode is
connected, the ScriptProcessorNode will continue to play even if all
Javascript references to the node are dropped.

Basically, the only way to stop a ScriptProcessorNode is to set
onaudioprocess to 0 or to disconnect the node from the graph.  (Or close
the tab.)

Is that a correct summary?
