Test in a separate thread

Hello I am running a test for a module which starts a new thread. When the test is terminated, I stop the thread but the test appears in the testing tool as not being terminated. Is there a better way to stop the test?

Can you post a small example? My guess is the thread is exiting but not the parent.

Thanks, although it's not something I can easily run because of I don't have the serial hardware you're using. The test seems to wait for _result() to be called five times but it is never called, as far as I can tell, so the parent would sit in the while True indefinitely after the LockReader thread completes.
