Threads and daemon processes

I have a program that uses threading.Timer to execute a function after a
delay.  It works fine when I run the program normally, but when I run the
program as a daemon process, I can't find any evidence that the function
ever runs.  Is it the case that daemon processes are not allowed to create
a thread?
