Long share names not working is a client bug - NT doesn't 
do this correctly if the server doesn't support Unicode.

Unicode conversion is currently going on in the HEAD
branch (HEAD currently does unicode on the wire by default).

Note the internal conversion still needs doing, it's single
code page unicode at the moment....

a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
