[jcifs] MalformedURLException

The problem is that the URL class provided by Java 1 is not as good as 
that provided by Java 2.

It would be nice if jCIFS were able to work under both Java 1 and Java 2,
but the list of problems supporting both continued to grow.  The error you
are seeing is generally caused by the Java 1 URL class.
