You should have a jcifs.smb.client.password parameter.

That's not good. You might want to bypass the filter for that handler
(but be careful that you don't create a security hole).

Other people have reported this problem. I don't know what it is. It
could be misconfiguration (e.g. missing jcifs.smb.client.password
property) or it could be the "hiccup" bug reported some time ago.
Please try the jcifs-1.2.22c package in the download area. I recently
made a small change that could affect this behavior. Not sure.
