There are a few problems here. One is that the code as it standard will
almost certainly finalize Python before your thread has acquired the lock.
If you look at the Python for Win32 extensions source code
(starship.python.net/crew/mhammond/cvs.html) and find the 'pywintypes.h'
file, you will find a 'CEnterLeavePython' class. This manages the
thread state for you and allows 'random' threads to call back into Python.
