[jcifs] SmbURL's with @'s in the path portion

Just found something else... if I have a url that looks like the following:

smb://rob:password@hostname/sharename/foo/Mom @ Cannes/lotr.jpg

jCIFS balks with a hostname not found exception. I believe I found the 
reason, though.

Line 176 of SmbURL does a lastIndexOf ("@") to get the index of the @. 
It then looks after the @ for the hostname. So, in this case, it's 
trying to find a server named " Cannes", I think.

Is there any issue that I am unaware of with making this an indexOf 
instead of lastIndexOf()?
