That's because multiprocessing exits child processes with os._exit(), not sys.exit().

The fix would be trivial (call threading._shutdown() before os._exit()), but I don't know if that's something we want to do. After all there are many things in the Python shutdown procedure that we may want to similarly replicate in multiprocessing children, such as calling atexit handlers. This screams for a more general solution, IMHO.
