You got me.  That's what I meant when I wrote "calls to t.isAlive()
returned True long after the thread referred to had finished up and put
out its final [shutdown] message."

I don't know what it would take to have a t.isAlive() call ever come back 
as False.  I may experiment a bit.  That tutorial and program was put 
together on the fly late last night, and I didn't have the opportunity to 
look into that issue.
