[Python-Dev] test_threaded_import hanging on MacOS and Irix

test_threaded_import occasionally hangs in MacPython from the current
CVS tree (about 30% of the time) and I was going to look into this
shortly, assuming it to be a Mac-specific error.

But today suddenly it also hung on my Irix 6.5 Python, also
uninterruptible with control-C.

Is anyone else seeing this? Could this be a race that is
machine-independent? I do happen to know that the SGI is rather
aggressive with thread switching, and so is my MacPython pthread
