The problem is that Py_FinalizeEx() tries to close the sys.stdin object in _PyImport_Cleanup(), but closing the buffered object requires the object lock which is hold by _thread(). _thread() is blocked on waiting for a newline character.

I suggest to use non-blocking read in a loop, to be able to properly stop your thread at Python exit. You may want to give a try using the asyncio module.

Python works as expected. I don't see any bug here. I close the issue.
