The '@' is a reserved character in that part of the URL. I wrote the I-D
on the SMB URL, and I have no idea how you would parse "smb://:@@HOME/".
It would vary from implementation to implementation. The correct way to
write it would be "smb://:@%40HOME/" or simply "smb://%40HOME/".
That would be the right syntax for the URL...
