Fair enough. The question is not expressed clearly for others. Do you have
any suggestions as to how to describe the problem clearer?

I can think of no other way but to say I have an app that when I terminate
it, completes ok, However the last thing that happens before the shell
prompt returns is that there is a traceback *within* python.
(The actual post goes into more details of course.)

I just took a guess that it is *thread* related from the output of the
traceback. I'm still learning python, so how could one pose the problem

And thanks for the feedback regarding threads, by the way.
