I don't think that this usage is limited to かと思うと. と思うと probably has plenty of examples.
often this is used when a second, contradicting thought follows.
I don't think that last example is the same usage. What the others have in common are 1. Continuing, every time type occurrence (e.g. When [every time] I think X ...) 2. The result is feeling / emotion related. The third example is a) Past tense, once off. b) The second half of the sentence /isn't/ the result of the first. c) Isn't かおもうと but かおもったら
