question about ctrl-d and atexit with threads

Actually, this problem can also be seen by running this code as a
script, it hangs up if the sys.exit lines are commented, and exits
normally if uncommented.

import atexit
import threading
import time


class MyThread(threading.Thread):

    def __init__(self):
        threading.Thread.__init__(self)

        self.lock = threading.Lock()
        self.stopEvent = threading.Event()

    def run(self):
        while not self.stopEvent.isSet():
            time.sleep(0.1)

    def stop(self):
        self.stopEvent.set()
        self.join()


my_thread = MyThread()

def stop_execution():
    my_thread.stop()

atexit.register(stop_execution)

my_thread.start()

#import sys
#sys.exit()
