If the "guest" account on a server was not disabled as it normally is
it would be possible for a user to use an invalid username to access an
SMB resource or website protected with the NtlmHttpFilter. JCIFS will
no longer successfully authenticate the "guest" account at all (even if
the guest account is enabled and the user enters "guest"). A log message
will now be generated for all SmbAuthExceptions in the NtlmHttpFilter
if the jcifs.util.loglevel property is set to 2 or greater. Behavior
regarding accessing System properties has been curbed to accomodate more
restrictive environments. Finally a benign exception that could occur
if the client was misconfigured has been fixed.

Greedo shoots first? Not in my Star Wars.
