I've seen at least two different threadings on similar parts (metal
standoffs for peecee motherboards, male threads on one end and female
on the other).  But it seems likely to me that the thread for any
particular connector will be rather better standardized, and one DE15 I
just checked (actually, the DE15 end of a 13W3/DE15 adapter) is indeed
4-40 - or close enough to fool me when tested with a 4-40 nut.
