Well, in this case you should try to isolate a complete program that crashes
and post it here.

No, destroying a shared_ptr in one thread and copying it from another
doesn't work. Even if it did, destroying a std::list in one thread and
iterating over it from another doesn't work either. If you access an object
from more than one thread, all accesses must be read (non-modifying)
