After putting a basic ThreadingUDPServer under load (500 messages per/second)  I noticed that after a night it was consuming a lot of RAM given it does nothing with the data.

On inception, I noticed the _thread count inside the server was growing forever even though the sub-threads are done.

Setup a basic ThreadingUDPSever with handler that does nothing and check the request_queue_size, it seems to grow without limit.

The only way I could figure out to control it was to do this in a thread;

        for thread in server._threads:  # type: Thread
            if not thread.is_alive():

Shouldn't the server process do this when the thread is done?
