[jcifs] Bug report: Android apps get "wrong password" and are denied access

Hello everyone,
I experienced an issue with basically every Android app I tried: when I log in the SMB server (kernel illumos, using kernel-cifs) I get “wrong password” error on the client and on the server logs.
Most of the apps repeat this indefinitely, but “File Explorer HD” at the second attempt gets accepted.

I reported the issue on the mailing list of my distro (OmniOS) and another user pointed me to these two links:
https://lists.samba.org/archive/jcifs/2013-April/010064.html <https://lists.samba.org/archive/jcifs/2013-April/010064.html>
https://www.illumos.org/issues/3594 <https://www.illumos.org/issues/3594>

Is anyone aware of the issue? given the wireshark capture, it looks like the issue is more on the jCIFS side. I think that the issue does not appear on servers running samba, but I cannot say whether samba is more tolerant than expected, or if illumos is not following correctly some protocol.

Could someone give me some directions about a way to solve the issue, if possible on my side?

Thank you in advance.
Olaf Marzocchi
