What operating system are you running? On XP SP2 and later, a new
thread should inherit the impersonation token of the calling thread,
unless the caller passes a specific security descriptor into
CreateThread. (I don't know what the Python thread module does.) On XP
SP1 and before, you'd see the behavior you describe.
