Not really. It is a synergistic effect between Samba and JCIFS. Because
JCIFS reuses transports for any communication with that server,
when you funnel all sessions through one JCIFS instance (Davenport)
you effectively multiplex all requests over one transport. When this
happends Samba displays all virtual directories associated with the peer
and thus the problem.

You can set ssnLimit to 1 causing each session to be created over it's
own transport but that eliminates the efficiency benifits of multiplexing
all communication over the same transport.

Or you can ask the Samba guys to change the code but I doubt they will
as the behavior is not an "error" since the whole home directories thing
is a Sambaism.
