Comment:

 The documentation of SystemExit clearly states that it will cause the
 Python interpreter to exit, not abort a thread. So I don't see where your
 expectation comes from.

 The pattern you link to is a mess. Unless you can identify a clear issue
 in the lmdif code I think this ticket is invalid.
