At the risk of increasing your frustration, I'm going avoid answering 
your question as well and simply point out that if you use the 
"threading" module, as is recommended, you won't have to deal with this 
issue at all, and your code will generally be simpler.

(To answer your real question I'd have to check the docs for "thread" 
and, since I _never_ use that module in spite of heavy use of threading, 
I can't help you more... sorry.)
