The man page for slapd-shell states as a limitation, that it can't be used 
multi-threaded. Thus, it does not seem to be a Windows specific problem as 
far as I can see.

       The  shell  backend does not support threaded environments.  When 
using the shell
       backend, slapd(8) should be built --without-thread.

So unless you can get someone to fix back-shell, you are out of luck.

I am having similar difficulties with back-perl, and am having to re-write my 
backend as a variant of back-ldap, all in C. It's hard work, but will be 
worth it for me.
