I think that you need to URL escape that url


You may need to escape the second @, from my understanding of  RFC 1738 
you do not need to but IANAE and I'n not up-to-date on the smb URL to 
say this.

(I guess usernames can contain a / so that's why everything up to the @ 
is callsed as "username"@home.txt

ftp://user:pass@foo.com/some/dir/im@home/text.txt is valid no?

But Seeing as a '/' is a reserver char in usernames/pass it would need 
to be escaped here?
