I encountered this issue while debugging some multiprocessing code; fork() would be called from one thread while sys.stdout was in use in another thread (simply because of a couple of debugging statements). As a result the IO lock would be already "taken" in the child process and any operation on sys.stdout would deadlock.

This is definitely something that can happen more easily than I thought.
