When imap() or imap_unordered() are called with the iterable parameter set as a generator function, and when that generator function raises an exception, then the _task_handler thread (running the method _handle_tasks) dies immediately, without causing the other threads to stop and without reporting the exception to the main thread (that one that called imap()).

I saw this issue in Python 2.7.8, 2.7.9 and 3.4.2. Didn't check other versions, but I assume this is a bug in all Python versions since 2.6.

I will be attaching examples that reproduce this issue, as well as patches for both Python 2.7 and Python 3.4.
