There is a minimal example: if we remove \color{red} or put it before
\linethickness{1.2pt} the lines coincide

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{color}
\begin{document}
\setlength{\unitlength}{10mm}
\begin{picture}(1,1)
\linethickness{1.2pt}
\put(1,0){\line(0,1){1}}
\linethickness{1.2pt}
\color{red}
\put(1,0){\line(0,1){1}}
\end{picture}\end{document}

environment and does not want to switch
