I've briefly got a FreeBSD 7.0 amd64 setup available, and test_threading
passes in this environment.
Short term fix I'd suggest is to only disable this part of the test for
FreeBSD 6.x and earlier (ie platforms freebsd4, freebsd5, freebsd6).
I also checked my OS/2 EMX build and wasn't surprised to see it fail on
the same part of test_threading - fork() on OS/2 EMX is fragile enough
without threads in the mix.
If a disabler is added for FreeBSD as above, 'os2emx' should be in the
Python tracker <report at bugs.python.org>
