what loads this javascript and from where?

I am debugging the joomla installation script on my pc (using apache and a php IDE).  The url is http://localhost/WebService4QBWC/joomla/installation/index.php.

Was curious what was causing the install script to generate a new http request every 30 seconds while php IDE was in break mode, so I set an XHR Breakpoint in Chrome DevTools for urls that contain 'localhost'.  

I see the following javascript being the cause:
window.setInterval(function() {
    var r;
    try {
        r = window.XMLHttpRequest ? new XMLHttpRequest() : new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
    } catch (e) {
    if (r) {
        r.open("GET", "./", true);
}, 30000);

Open in new window

How do I figure out what is causing this javascript to be loaded and executed?

I suspect it might be from any of the includes.
Searched Joomla forum and thought it might be related,

Hope this resolves.
