New submission from Gregory P. Smith:

This probably applies to 3.0 as well but i have not tested it there.

Here are some sample failures:

=========== A ==============
Exception in thread Thread-0000000001 (most likely raised during
interpreter shutdown):Exception in thread Thread-0000000003 (most likely
raised during interpreter shutdown):

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

=========== B ==============

============================

And as with all problems of this sort... sometimes the program exits
normally without any problems.

I ran python trunk:60012 under gdb above.  But these problems occur on
older versions such as 2.4.
