I fear that you can call Python functions in general only on the current thread (the other's probably lack the GIL, an essential requirement to execute Python code). Moreover, it seems that your Python is build without debugging symbols. Debugging symbols are almost a must when you try to analyse problems at this level. I would rebuild Python with debugging symbols (and, if possible, without optimizations). -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
