Hi all,


Managed to get a NullPointerException in SmbSession.getChallengeForDomain. 


This seems to occur when, for what ever reason a domain controller can't be
located and this same method throws UnknownHostException. When the next
request comes thru to this same method the line 


if (dc_list_expiration < now) { 


Prevents the domain controller being looked up, we then end up at 


int max = Math.min( dc_list.length, LOOKUP_RESP_LIMIT ); 


This line then throws a NullPointException because dc_list is null.
