You must have a bug in your threading code. I am doing something
similar to what you describe, and it works perfectly, on Windows and on

Threading *is* the correct approach for what you are attempting. Don't
give up. Try to isolate where the crash happens, and post the relevant
section of code here. If I can't spot the error, there is a good chance
someone else will.
