I recently started using python again, and I just decided to write a threaded program, and for some reason whenever I try to start a thread python crashes. It happens if I subclass Thread and call subclass.start(), or use thread.start_new_thread(). I re-installed 2.5.1 and it still does it, and it works fine in 2.4. Has anyone run into this? Any ideas? for now I guess I'll continue my project but with 2.4. I'm sure someone has used threading since the release of 2.5 :) EDIT: well it turns out that its only because I was trying to do it in IDLE. You learn something new every day. Ha.

Yeah I noticed pygame crashes all the time if I try to run it from within IDLE!
Learned to run all my stuff from the command line.
