New submission from Matt Chaput <matt at whoosh.ca>:

If you start unit tests with a command line such as "python setup.py test" or "nosetests", if the tested code starts a multiprocessing.Process on Windows, each new process will act as if it was started as "python setup.py test"/"nosetests", leading to an infinite explosion of processes that eventually locks up the entire machine.
