Well, the funny thing is that Stephen Walton on the matplotlib list just
reported that it works just fine for him, on Fedora 1 with kernel 2.6.7. I've
tested Fedora 2 with kernel 2.6.6 and Fedora 1 with 2.4.something, and they
both lock up.
If this is going to become a kernel/os/version/whatever-dependent problem,
tracking it down is going to be one hell of a PITA.
There's a reason why people warn you to stay away from threads...
