perhaps that passing a socket object from thread to thread is
prohibited?

Yes.

Even if so, should it result in a dead-lock, as opposed
to an error?

The consequences are undefined.

The script performs password guessing, leveraging brute.lua. It is not
doing any unusual socket work; all it does is connect, read, write, and
close. It maintains a connection pool so that a new connection is not
required for every guess attempt. In the course of the run a connection
may be passed from from one worker to another.

I suggest you setup workers which each manage a single connection.
