Software Verification have Python Thread Validator. Its not publicly
advertised on the beta part of the website, but it is available.

Take a look at Thread Validator or Java Thread Validator to see what the
tool looks like (the Python tool is similar). If you are interested send
an email to support asking about the Python port.
