Oh, this is probably due to the fileserver running two different RX
services; the main one for RXAFS requests, and the RXSTATS one. The
number of RX threads in the pool is calculated according to the min and
max threads required for each service, but I think that "idle threads"
number is the number of idle threads for all of RX.

The -p parameter, on the other hand, only affects the number of threads
for RXAFS requests.
