New submission from Petri Lehtinen <petri at digip.org>:

In the description of section 16.2.2. Lock objects:

    If an attempt is made to release an unlocked lock, a RuntimeError
    will be raised.

In the description of Lock.release():

    When invoked on an unlocked lock, a ThreadError is raised.

Apparently, ThreadError is the correct exception.
