[jcifs] NPE in SmbFile.listFiles with 1.2.18

I very much appreciate that you took the time to understand this issues.
FYI, I have 19 shares on a Windows 2003 server. Is that considered "too
many"? I really have no idea.
The 1.2.17 codebase has no problems handling this test case. So
something has changed leading up to 1.2.18.
In fact this code is not critical to my use of JCifs at all. It was just
something I ran into via unit testing.
Anyway, it's not too often that I get to help out the open source
community that has so often helped me. Therefore, keep me in the loop
and if I can help to unit test the "fix" when its available just let me
Thanks very much,

This is a bug. The server has so many shares it is sending a
multi-fragment response which for some reason JCIFS seems to be having
a problem with. I'll try to get this fixed for the next release.
