This came up again today as bug 27508.  In the absence of "fixing it", we should add docs to multiprocessing explaining the high-level consequences of skipping "normal" exit processing (BTW, I'm unclear on why it's skipped).

I've certainly mixed threads with multiprocessing too, but I always explicitly .join() my threads so never noticed this.  It's sure a puzzle when it happens ;-)
