Mopidy starts up without errors with python 2.7

[ramla@alive ~]$ mopidy
INFO     -- Starting Mopidy 0.4.0 --
** Message: pygobject_register_sinkfunc is deprecated (GstObject)
INFO     Mopidy uses SPOTIFY(R) CORE
INFO     Disabled: mopidy.frontends.lastfm.LastfmFrontend (No module named pylast)
INFO     MPD server running at [::]:6600
INFO     MPD client connection from [::1]:57049
INFO     Connected to Spotify

However no mpd client seems to be able to communicate with it. Ncmpcpp's UI stops updating and sonata shows no signs of a working connection even though mopidy informs about a client connection.

A telnet connection can be made and mopidy answers OK if no mpd client is running or has been started after starting mopidy.

                problem with the inter-thread communication on python 2.7

                blocks forever when som inter-thread communication

                stuff with something else that will allow for easier 
                frontend development too

Just wanted to add that some 10-15 tests are not passing on Python 2.7. Fixing them will hopefully fix this issue.

The feature/pykka-actors branch in my repo will fix this when merged into develop some time before the next release.
