I'd have to look at the Mozilla source, but it sounds like they are supplying
gathered credentials to SSPI, rather than using the default credential handle
(which authenticates using the current logged-in user).

You could see if "UTF16-LE" works.  According to this:


it is mapped directly to UnicodeLittleUnmarked, and UTF16-LE is one of the
encodings required to be supported in JDK 1.3+ (I think there was some question
as to whether the byte-order mark might be optional in UTF16-LE, rather than
definitely unmarked, which I'm guessing is why jCIFS uses UnicodeLittleUnmarked
instead of UTF16-LE).  Of course, that's no guarantee that it's supported in
