[jcifs] Some shares are not reported by jCIFS

The SMB Server is a Netapp Filer and we are using the Solaris server to get
the shares on the Netapp.  Regarding the network trace, I will find out from
our client if they would be willing.

Can you verify with a network trace what is being returned by the SMB
server on the Solaris server?  BTW what is the SMB server that you are

Ethereal or even just a snoop trace during the request would be fine.

Since there are hard (and enforced :) limits on the size of attachments
to the list, host it on a web server and we can all look at it and see
if it is JCIFS not parsing properly or if the Solaris SMB Server is not
returning everything.
