Strange. This looks like the SmbTransport.server.encryptionKey is not
being initialized properly.

Do Safari and Konqueror support NTLM HTTP authentication? Regardless the
code should be debugged further to determine where the initialization
failure is occurring and either fix it or throw a more appropriate
exception. I'll add this to The List but I can't guarantee I will perform
the necessary work to include a fix. I don't think I have Konqueror and
I'm not certain I want to mess up my mac trying to figure out how to
join it to the domain.

If you perform a more detailed analysis please let us know.
