in reply to perl threads exiting abnormally

It's possible that LWP::UserAgent is not threadsafe, its a complicated module, you can google for it. So why not use forks if they work? The only reason to use threads over fork is if you want to share realtime data between threads with shared variables. Sorry if that is not a satifactory answer, but Perl threads can be very tricky to use.
