[jcifs] A bug when looping through IPs

Hi JCIFS support,

We are using latest jcifs lib for our internal app and there was randomly an error "A duplicate name ..." happened. After tracing into the code, I found there is a private method doConnect() in SmbFile class. It is called by a loop if there are multiple addresses obtained from the name.  And at SmbFile.java line 894 - 899, the code is checking if tree is null, if not it will re-use the tree.session, so every loop it is using the first address because the tree.session is alive. Therefore, in the case if the first one from list of the addresses is failed, the loop will not get the next address.

Do you think there is any way to release a fix? Or we can do our own fork?
