Python 2.6 introduced new names in the threading/thread modules that are more Pythonic, eg using Thread.daemon to set/get this daemonic quality instead of setDaemon/isDaemon. But this attribute currently has no special meaning and is thus quietly ignored.

This seems to cause downstream issues as tests do not properly terminate.
