[Backgroundrb-devel] Question about killing threads

If I do the following:

threads = []
threads[0] << Thread.new do
	while true
		# some code
	end
end

# Will this kill off the first thread?
threads[0] << Thread.new do
	while true
		# some more code
	end
end

Will the second assignment kill off the first thread? Or will that  
first thread keep going and never stop unless i explicitly kill it  
using the Thread.kill method?

Thanks for your help.

Thank You,
Ben Johnson
