I thought that might be it, but from the looks of it, I've pasted a print
at the end of every run() method in my Thread object, which I understand is
the very
last command.. although I suppose the thread could switch over immediately
after the
pause, but I do a join for each thread from the main thread.

I've tried it with a single thread and join and it still occurs. :)

  I've no idea how to get a core file. :) But yeah.. one of my hopes
was that Python might do some necessary cleaning up and that I was 
somehow mucking that up.. but my calls are pretty straightforward, it's
a simple:

j = HopperThread()
print "Are we done?"

... and it's still mucking up. :)

I'm probably going to end up randomly commenting sections of code in some
and error setup anyway, but I thought I'd see if anyone could explain the
bullet (read: where I'm royally messing things up) before I reduce my code
to a 
single nonfunctioning print statement. :)

Thanks for the idea though.. if I can ever find out "where" the program
screws up
(where "where" is some line number < lines of code :) ).. I'll whittle my
way through..
