This doesn't address your specific question about threads, but
describes a workaround I did for something similar. I'm mailing
the list with my reply, in case someone has a comment on whether
my workaround is a bad idea.
I've got an extension module that has a global memory space that
stores variables. I created a class that imports that module. I
want the imported extension module associated for each instance of
the class, however, to have a separate memory space from other
instances, so each instance would access only its version of a given
variable in that extension module's memory space.
The only way I could think of to get what I wanted was to create a
temporary directory, copy the shared object file to that directory,
and import that copied version of the extension module. Here's the
code that does it, along with a check at the end that you imported
the copied version (origsofile is the installed location of the
extension module's shared object file, self.sodir is the name of
the temporary directory, created using the tempfile module, soname
is the extension module's name, and the imported extension module
is stored as the attribute self.__qtcm):
origsofile = \
os.path.join( os.path.split(_package_version.__file__) \
, soname + '.so' )
self.__qtcm = __import__(soname)
if os.path.split(self.__qtcm.__file__) != self.sodir:
raise ValueError, 'Incorrect import of .so library'
In your case, maybe your first and second threads are accessing the
same variable in memory, i.e., each thread doesn't allocate its own
array but accesses the variable in the extension module in whatever
state it is in? I'd also very much welcome being corrected.
