While @Brian would be along later with an official answer I feel that this may not be directly related to BBMap. If you have pigz installed on your machine then BBMap tools use it by default to uncompress files and that program may be starting additional threads that overwhelm your system.

If pigz is installed you could turn it off by adding "pigz=f unpigz=f" to your BBMap tools commands and see if that stops the problem. Do keep using threads= option. You are not running this under a job scheduler, correct?
