Ok, I tied 2.2.8a. No difference.

These are admittedly obscure and will likely not effect effect windows
clients too badly but it's definiately non-cornforming behavior (I use the
term loosely considering MS implementations) and the DFS stuff will simply
not work with jCIFS which is shame.

After I finish up jCIFS 0.8 I'll switch to 3.0 and try that too.


A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
