Yeah, the TreeConnect path is getting messed up for some reason. Are
there any strange characters in the password? If so you will need to
URL escape them. Try separating out the credentials like:

  NtlmPasswordAuthentication auth = new NtlmPasswordAuthentication("domain", "username", "password");
  SmbFile f = new SmbFile("smb://sga/sga/", auth);
