I'm surprised that this works.  Normally if you try this on a windows
machine the port forwarding setup will fail because the local SMB
service on that machine is already listening on 139, and so it's
impossible for ssh to bind to that port.  How are you getting around
this?  Have you tried adding verbosity (-vvv) to the ssh command to see
if there are errors setting up the port forwarding?
