Having compiled openldap without thread support I made some testing and got *very* confused.
My impression is that the switch --whithout-threads disables threading, but does not run using a multi-processing model.
I mean the only way parallel processing can be done is via threads ? Is this correct ?

The --without-threads option is generally pretty crippling. The only reason to use it is if you must have back-shell support, or if you're building on a platform that doesn't have a supported thread library.
