[IronPython] IronPython and Threads

I'm having a problem debugging some issues that I suspect are thread
related in Silverlight. My application is failing silently, so I have
no way to be sure yet. Is it possible that exceptions in a background
thread are quietly swallowed? I'm pretty sure my callback is being
called, but all that is in it right now is a raise statement.
I've enabled debug.
<param name="initParams" value="debug=true,reportErrors=errorLocation" />
I've been trying to explore Threads a little more with IronPython to
see what might be the problem, but even there I'm not having much
luck. I could swear this used to work in Beta 1. Now it crashes the
IronPython 2.0 Beta (126.96.36.1990) on .NET 2.0.50727.1433

What's going wrong? How should I be doing this?
