I've seen python core dump when this is done (python 2.0 IIRC, but I'm
still *very* wary of doing it). I wouldn't if I were you :)

They exit automatically when program ends, i.e. you do reactor.stop() -
unless they are doing something, in which case they will exit when they
next try to read next task from queue. Your problem may be because you
are doing tests and thus reactor.stop() is neveer called and it thus
never shuts down the threadpool for you.
