Details? For example, does APS hang? Or, does it just fail with an
It's just sitting here, accepting connections from the softs who adresses it. But it does not forward them to the MS Proxy.

Yes it does. At least, it does an "import thread" at the beginning of the script. As I wrote, I don't know much about python...
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.
I've CC'd the author of APS.
