Congratulation, Sturla!

I must admit that I am not too much enthousiastic about the
thread+polling to do the cleaning up. I don't really understand why it is
necessary. If the view of the array is the last to be decref, than
'buf.shm_nattch' should be 0, and as a result the freeing up of the
memory can happen in the dealloc. Or did I miss something?

Cheers,

Gaël
