I get an exception running a Python example that uses threads

Would some kind soul try the example and let me know that it does/doesn't work for you? Setting debug print around the code suggests that the third Lock object created causes the exception.

Thanks - Jim

Not sure this is going to help ...

$ /usr/bin/python
Python 2.5.1 (r251:54863, Aug 30 2007, 08:07:01)
[GCC 3.4.4 (cygming special, gdc 0.12, using dmd 0.125)] on cygwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

Running the example on the above Python system I just see the command prompt return with no program output whatsoever:

sholden@bigboy ~/Projects/Python
$ /usr/bin/python

So it fails, but doesn't bring up the exception dialog.

That's right: nothing at all. But note I compiled this particular version myself, so I guess it's possible I didn't enable threads.

[Re-installs standard 2.5.1 for Cygwin].

Strange how hotel network bandwidth always seems to drop to that of a piece of wet string when you really need performance ... oh well, at least now I know how long it take to download Python at 22.6 kb/s :-)

Nope, sorry, same results after reverting to the standard install. Runs to completion with no error dialog nor output.
