On Linux, unlike Darwin, after a process performs exec, the thread id doesn't change. This causes any living thread plans to fail because the original thread is now invalid. This crash only happens if thread plans are still executing when the original thread dies.

I've been testing this on my Linux machine and it happens mostly when I attach to a process that then execs. If LLDB launches that process, this problem almost never happens. As with most race conditions, it's hard to predict and reproduce. In any case, I added a test with an attach scenario that works correctly on my machine.
