Solved. The easy way. Not related at all with jcifs, but I'll post it for
reference for others, anyway.

File f = new File("\\\\server\share\path\to\", "file.txt");
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(f);

I _suppose_ that it only works on Windows, because \\server\share is a file path
that Linux/Unix can't handle.

I swear that I tried it before I mailed here, but it did not work... and it
works now. They only thing I can think about is some kind of temporal problem in
the MS domain making the first test fail.
