[Twisted-web] twisted web / reactor.callInThread()

hi all,

I am using reactor.callInThread(methodname, args ...) to start a 
function in a new thread from a twisted web application. Today i got 
problems with my server, and when i looked at the currently running 
processes there where about 50 twisted processes running, some of them 
where days/weeks old.

I increased the Threadpoolsize previously with the command


to 50 in order to have more parallel executions...

Could it be that some of the threads didnt get terminated and cleaned up 
correctly, or are the processes just visible because the threadPoolSize 
was set as high? ...I'm almost sure my function terminates correctly...

any help or information about this behaviour would be appreciated
