Can you send me a wireshark trace of this so I can look
at the exact packet list ?

Looks like this is a case we should be handling in this
block of code:

                 * We're splitting off the last SMB2
                 * request in a compound set, and the
                 * smb2_send_async_interim_response()
                 * call above just sent all the replies
                 * for the previous SMB2 requests in
                 * this compound set. So we're no longer
                 * in the "compound_related_in_progress"
                 * state, and this is no longer a compound
                 * request.
