R. David Murray added the comment:

I have production code on Windows using python2.7 that calls Event().wait() with a timeout of approximately 24 hours, and it works just fine.  Having that no longer work is, IMO, an unacceptable regression.  (I'm ready to move this code to python3 as soon as cx_Freeze supports Windows services under python3).
