satellite render and threading on master machine

when i'm using satellite, sometimes my master machine drops to using only one thread, even though its a dual proc machine. its really annoying because i'm using satellite to increase power and then mental ray shoots itself in the foot by not multithreading. the render settings are set right. usually the master will multi thread for a while, and then drop down to just one.

wondering if this is just how satellite with mr works, or if i'm doing something wrong. i can run satellite on the master machine and have it not render locally, but its slower that way.
