I don't think it has anything to do with the user threads.
The crash was during the VM termination. The launcher initiated the
termination (I guess through DestroyJavaVM or similar call), and crashed
inside CMS. Following is the stack trace.

*** SIGSEGV (@(nil)), see go/cppdebug received by PID 782912 (TID 783045);
stack trace: ***

tcmalloc writes 0xcdcdcdcd when it deallocates the memory (in this case,
Java heap), and core dump show that CMS thread was interpreting that word
as an oop and crashed.
