I don't see any reason why accessing smb:// should require a valid
user name and password.

As I wrote before I'm accessing smb:// which shouldn't require any
authentication at all. Just for completeness: getPath() returns
"smb://" as expected.


Michael, sorry for writing this message twice - by accident I just hit
reply instead of using "reply to all".
