Secondary structure i.e. big hairpin in the mRNA of the second
construct.

One of the additional sequences makes your protein lethal? 

The second construct is re-arranging or kicking the plasmid out as it
grows.

I presume sequencing shows the 2nd construct is correct with no
accidental change of reading frame etc.
