Tkinter, ArcPy and Threading

Hey All,

Just wanted to get a solid answer from someone.  My question is very similar to:

http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/63390-Bug-with-arcpy-in-a-thread (2012)

I'm trying to intermittently inject data into an SDE in Python (via a Tkinter interface).  I would like to start the function in a thread so that the UI will not be locked up but everytime I call InsertCursor, for example, arcpy.InsertCursor(self.featureClassList[5]) within a Thread I get a catastrophic crash...  Is this an impossible task?
