Actually the AWT and Swing use multiple threads. If jCIFS is being
invoked by windowing code it could be the source of the problem. I
would try to change the code so that SmbFiles are created with each new
instruction. Meaning if the file chooser wishes to list files create a
new SmbFile object to do it ...etc. Another simple thing to try just to
see if it's a synchronization issue is to wrap your list call in

synchronized(someobj) {

If it goes away, that at least rules out protocol issues. It wouldn't
mean it's not a bug in jCIFS however.


May The Source be with you.
