The problem is that socketserver.ThreadingMixIn spawns threads without waiting for their completion in server_close(). For example, the following two tests use socketserver.ThreadingMixIn and so can leak a running thread:

* test.test_logging.SocketHandlerTest.test_output()
* test.test_logging.DatagramHandlerTest.test_output()


10-STABLE-amd64% ./python -m test -v test_logging --fail-env-changed -F -m test.test_logging.DatagramHandlerTest.test_output -m test.test_logging.ConfigDictTest.test_listen_config_10_ok  --match=test.test_logging.SocketHandlerTest.test_output
