[jcifs] Hosts and shares enumeration

I did some testing on this; it appears to affect at least back to 0.9.0.
Adding the following to SmbFile.java at line 591-ish appears to fix it:

    this.auth = context.auth;

It appears that the SmbFile constructor used in the listFiles methods leaves
the auth field null, causing it to fall back to the account specified by
"jcifs.smb.client.*" (defaulting to GUEST).  Setting it to the context SmbFile's
auth seems to fix things.
