   Tim, Thank you for your comment, I switch my code to use time.sleep.
   I find that the threading module is poor for documentation, i only found
class _Semaphore(_Verbose):
    # After Tim Peters' semaphore class, but not quite the same (no maximum)
class _Event(_Verbose):
    # After Tim Peters' event class (without is_posted())
    But i don`t understand exactly that this comments mean.

   I  think  the  one  DB  instance  is  using  by  Zope,  DB  that  created  in
   Zope2.App.startup.startup ( zope 2.8 way )  function,  I`ll  check  the  
   __builtins__.id  of the DB instance/instances.

   Thank you, Tim, again. This help me enough.
