if that is not the reason, I would run it in the debugger and enable the
debugger to stop whenever an exception is thrown or a signal is raised. Try
to see if that happens when this one thread runs... Logs might help as
well. Finally, does the program wait for the thread to exit or does it
detaches the thread from the thread object? Is is possible that some
dangling references or pointers are accessed in the thread (but than the
debugger should receive an access violation signal).

Can you reproduce a minimal example to be posted here. I know it might be
hard to do when dealing with MT-contexts.
