Client threads can't be seen over the network :-).

What matters is concurrent requests, and smbclient
certainly does issue concurrent requests up until
the credit window size of the server (or 256, whichever
is smaller).

What would be really interesting is a comparative
wireshark trace of the request pattern issued by
the threads on a Windows client vs. the request
pattern issued by smbclient.
