Hmmm...  I'm not seeing that identifier in the jCIFS docs but I assume
that it is the wildcard address.

My part in all of this is digging into protocol specifics.  I don't know the
code the way I should.  (Which is a shame... Mike and the rest of you
deserve better from me, but I haven't got much time these days...)

What I would like to see, of course, is a packet trace.  If you use tcpdump
or Ethereal, the capture filter would be:

  port 137 and host <ipaddr>

where <ipaddr> is the address of the host running jCIFS.
