it might be a leak if WTSD is also low, because this indicates said person is too easily bluffed out of seeing SD and only go to SD when very confident they are ahead. But i don't think a high W$SD is bad in general. I've heard the same comment as you (folding too many hands before SD) but without WTSD i don't really think it means much at all, as a high W$SD could also mean you just read well and make a higher % of the correct laydowns and correct calls in the pots you go to SD.
I have a high W$SD (55-60% typically) but my WTSD is pretty standard at ~27. And i run pretty good (8BB/100 @ NL50) and i certainly don't consider this one of the things i have to work on.
You'd be better off worrying about plugging more obvious things. Post your stats if you are worrying about plugging leaks. If you are thinking about using W$SD to make reads, i'd be very careful as you need a huge amount of hands for such smaller aspects to be helpful.
