  That says that the inserts are *not* succeeding.  i.e. they start, but
they never stop.  This means that the threads handling the requests are
blocked, that they never respond to the client, and that new threads get
created for new requests until the maximum gets reached.

  The problem may be that the MySQL libraries are built without
threading support, or that they somehow don't work from multiple threads.

  I would say run it in non-threaded mode (-s) until the problem can be
tracked down and fixed.
