New submission from JoostBehrends <joost at h-labahn.de>:

On Nov.20, 2009 i got the traceback below from Python 3.1.1 under
WindowsXP-SP3, as several times before. From code with 

def _core(func, my_args):
    A = Thread(target = func, args = my_args); A.start(); A.join()
_core(ask_user, (question, default_answer))

Doesn't matter from what, the traceback is showing no calling line (thus
there is at least a slip in threading.py's exception handlers):

Unhandled exception in thread started by <bound method Thread._bootstrap
of <Thread(Thread-1, stopped 288)>>
Traceback (most recent call last):
