If more than one thread is waiting for the multiprocessing.pool.AsyncResult (aka ApplyResult) returned from apply_async, only one thread will be notified once the result arrives.

It happens because AsyncResult._set calls notify upon the result arrival, not notify_all.

threading.Event used in Python 3 uses notify_all.

Reproduction script is attached.
Expected outcome:
is printed to STDOUT.

Observed outcome:
The script hangs.
