Icannot imagine a way this could possibly work. I guess the lock should be released before the _connectionMap call? Interestingly both all the tests pass and ZODB works...Note the following in the __init__():: # Allocate lock. x = threading.RLock() self._a = x.acquire self._r = x.release The lock is a "reentrant" lock, which means that subsequent locks from within the same thread do not deadlock; instead, they increment the lock count.  http://docs.python.org/lib/module-threading.html#l2h-3418
Right. *removing blindfold* This explains something :) Thanks for the note.
Actually I came to that lock while investigating Ape for ZODB 3.6 where it in some way actually *did* lock. But I'll investigate that later.
