This is a interesting bug that seems to have started after I upgraded to debian
potato from slink.
It must be a library related bug but this report might help somebody
At first I thought it was a bug in threading because it prevented the solaris
hack sleep from returning
thus my thread.start() never returned.
But further digging show that
time.sleep(0.1) # will always hang on on this platform
Work around is to always sleep at least one second - I will do some more looking
at the time class when I get a chance.
