[jcifs] looping on disconnect

Hi Simon,

It's not clear from your description that doDisconnect is being called
incorrectly in a loop by JCIFS or if your code is simply calling
something 129 million times that is triggering JCIFS to try to connect
to servers that aren't listening. You stack trace shows the exception
is thrown out out of run() so that would actually suggest the later is
the case. I'm not ruling out a bug but I would need to see more
evidence to take further action.

Old JCIFS releases are in the "old" directory like:
