Hi !

I tried to set jcifs.encoding but nothing changed.
Note that i tried the same test under Solaris and Windows and it works
(without setting encodings, ... ).
Some System-Information: 
- Remote System = Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
- Client System = Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 2)
  Kernel release: 2.6.9-22.EL
