Was the assertion failure for pthread_mutex_lock(), or
pthread_mutex_destroy()? Your assertion message has the former, but
the back-trace indicates the latter.

Either way, the cause might be static initialization order. Do you
have a global object whose destructor makes use (directly, or
indirectly through any contained classes' destructors) of a mutex
which is also part of some global object?
