Why do you use execfile for this? That seems very odd to me. Also, why
use beginthreadex instead of the native Thread module?
Adding threading doesn't really change this problem. Just think about
how you'd solve it without threading: by creating a class and using import:
self.i = 1
self.j = 2
self.k = 4
self.i = 1+1
self.j += 2
self.k += 3
self.thread = temp.Handler()
Now, the rest of the GUI can examine self.thread.i, self.thread.j, and
self.thread.k. There are locking issues here, but that's left as an
exercise for the reader.
That's probably not the perfect solution, but it gives you the general
