> @vstinner I don't think so. People can already call PyEval_InitThreads.

Since only two users complained about in 3 years, I agree that it's ok to not fix Python 2.7 and 3.6. The workaround is to call PyEval_InitThreads() before starting the first thread.

I wasn't excited to make such stable in stable 2.7 and 3.6 anyway :-)

test_embed.test_bpo20891() is enabled again on master. I now close the issue.

Thanks Steve Dower for the bug report!
