okay that explains it. previously i had been using the pthread impl wrapped by MacOS thread manager calls. in that impl, when a thread exits, it self-disposes. i made an assumption (surprise) this would behave the same way. when i put a "delete thread" in the destructor, everything started working again!!
YAY thanks for that one little tip, something i should be well aware of at this point but you know, the forest / trees problem sometimes gets the best of us!
