New submission from yig <yotam at yotamgingold.com>:

Calling uuid.uuid4() while using the multiprocessing module leads to the same exact UUIDs being generating in each process.  It is an artifact resulting from the built-in uuid_generate_random() of my underlying platform, Mac OS X 10.6.3.  A Linux machine I have does not exhibit this problem.  I have tested it with both Python 2.5 and 2.6.
