Thanks for the explanation. Thats helpful to know.

After some additional stability tests with 200 threads accessing a
single windows share and another stability test of our application it
looks like the deadlock issue is fixed now. In addition to the places
already communicated, I had to synchronize SmbTree#treeConnect() in the
same way:

void treeConnect(ServerMessageBlock andx,
                 ServerMessageBlock andxResponse ) throws SmbException
  // ... add original message body here ...

Maybe you can add this change (or a better one) to the next jCIFS
version. The performance does not seem to be impacted heavily.

Best regards,
