Log Message:
find_key():  This routine wasn't thread-correct, and accounts for the
release-build failures noted in bug 1041645.

This is a critical bugfix.  I'm not going to backport it, though (no time).

 Core and builtins
+- The internal portable implementation of thread-local storage (TLS), used
+  by the ``PyGILState_Ensure()``/``PyGILState_Release()`` API, was not
+  thread-correct.  This could lead to a variety of problems, up to and
+  including segfaults.  See bug 1041645 for an example.
 - Added a command line option, -m module, which searches sys.path for the
   module and then runs it.  (Contributed by Nick Coghlan.)
