First, than you for the speedy response!

Well, I asked that question (I understand the V2 "issue").
They swear up & down they didn't....  Even thou the error sounds
pretty close to what one might expect from the text.

BTW, What is the time frame for that part of JCIFS to go away?
Are there any other possibilities for the error?  Is there any chance that
the current release can make a difference?

Thanks again,
