There's only 3 frames in Winclient.pcap but I think I know
what the problem is. The TransactNamedPipeInputStream and
TransactNamedPipeOutputStream close() methods are empty! Put a


in them and try calling the pipe stream close() methods. I will test and
fix this in 0.6.8 and 0.7.0b9 too but it would be nice if you could try
it and send me another pcap like Jcifsclient.pcap.

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
