Well, that was consequence of my bad English :-) Threads finish their
work and exit. I also made a simple wrapper to Thread.create to be sure
that all work inside threads is done:

module MyThread =
  let create f p =
    let dowork _ =
      (* log thread creation *)
      f p;
      (* log thread shutdown *)
    Thread.create dowork ()
