For what it is worth, calling very early GC_allow_register_threads like

int main (int argc, char** argv)
  static_assert (sizeof(State)<sizeof(intptr_t), "State should not have any data member");
  GC_allow_register_threads ();
did solve that particular issue. No more abort from libgc.

But I still don't know if when using std::thread all this is needed.
