that, likely, is a misunderstanding.  you're telling POV-Ray to run with one
worker ("render") thread.  if you use the eg 'ps' command while POV-Ray runs,
you'll see a minimum of six active threads.

if your scene code permits it, you could try and run POV-Ray version 3.6, which
aiui is the last version not "threaded".
