[jcifs] Problem with jCIFS 1.3.12 and submitting form

I have a web application (running on Tomcat) that uses jCIFS for 
authentication. When I upgraded to 1.3.12 version of jCIFS I found out 
that submitting of form that uses "post" method is very, very slow. 
Forms with "get" method work just fine. I didn't have this problem with 
1.3.10 version.

To show you my problem, I've created very simple application called 
"jCIFSTest" that has index.html, web.xml and jCIFS jar file. Tomcat 
version is 6.0.20.

       <form method="post" action="/jCIFSTest">
           <input type="hidden" name="dummy" value="dummy" />
           <input type="submit" value="Submit!"/>



I have looked at the jCIFS source and I've found out that 155. line of 
SmbTransport.java (address.getHostName()) causes this behavior.
Am I missing something? Do I have to configure jCIFS differently?
