New submission from Aldona Majorek <python at ada.majorek.org>:

Copy of issue 1579370

Programs using generators, exceptions and threads could crash.
I was not able to make plain python program to crash, but python program
embedded in C++ crashed very reliably. 

No more crashes after applying patch from 2.5 version stopped helped.

I verified that bug and patch on python 2.4.3.

Looking at the source code in svn, the same but lurks in latest 2.3 and
2.2 (since generators were introduced).
