Clean the film frame opening. The thread/lint should be visible.

Yep, this happened with an OM-1 I had. Put the shutter on bulb, open the back and hold down the shutter so you can inspect the whole frame. Most likely there's a loose bit of fiber. The time it happened to me most recently, I'm pretty sure it was a loose bit of felt from a hand-rolled film cartridge. That one resolved itself by disappearing.
