So the share type is listed in then entry.
0 : directory
1 : printer queue
2 : ??
3 : IPC

Michael (Schulze): You know Java.  Can you take a look at the code and see
how jCIFS is deriving the value you are getting?  It may be that you need
to ask the object for the share type as a separate step.  I have to admit
I'm not familiar with that bit of code.  Well, I'm not up-to-date on a lot
of the code because I've been busy writing documentation.  :)
