If you run the regression tests and watch the threads using the debugger, you can see that many tests leave netty threads running after that test should have been teared down. There seems to be lots of these >50.

These threads are named Jython-Netty-Child-XXX where I think XXX is just a counter.

To see this I am running 'java -agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=y,address=1045 -jar jython.jar Lib/test/' and then connecting using Eclipse remote debugger.

I don't think this is actually causing any issues but its not very nice that tests leave stuff behind. I wonder if this is related to the errors seen during netty finalization issue #2517
