[jcifs] Davenport with Vista on Netapp Filer

We run Davenport on a RedHat 5 Server, connecting to a NetApp filer.
This solution works okay using Windows XP as a (webdav) client. When
using Vista however, we noticed in our packetdumps that our solution
barfs while performing the authentication part of the webdav session.
The webdav client receives the following page:

HTTP/1.1 500
Date: Mon, 12 Nov 2007 14:01:58 GMT
Server: Jetty/4.2.27 (Linux/2.6.18-53.el5 i386 java/1.4.2_16)
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 1185

<title>Error 500 </title>
<h2>HTTP ERROR: 500 </h2>
<p><i><small><a href="http://jetty.mortbay.org">Powered by

As you can see we run the Jetty that came with Davenport, a Sun JRE
1.4.2_16, and upgraded the underlying JCIFS to version 1.2.17

We suspected an LMv2 authentication issue here, but tinkering with the
setting for jcifs.smb.lmCompatibility does not change this behavior.

We will gladly provide the packetdump if needed (outside this list). But
the bottomline is: is this just us? Or a known problem with the
extensively changed webdav client from Vista in combination with this setup?
