Details?  For example, does APS hang?  Or, does it just fail with an
error?  Does APS use threads?

I am currently tracking down two Python regression test (i.e.,
test_asynchat and test_socket) hangs with 1.3.20-1 which may be related
to your problem.  My problem was introduced between 1.3.19-1 and the
2003-Feb-01 snapshot.  With a limited amount of debugging, it appears
that creating a two sockets in two separate threads causes the second
one to hang.

Thankfully, I will be digging bugs today instead of snow. :,)
