Whether it interprets URLs or not, sigfault in any case is a bug :)

I need a bit another thing :)
I getting filename like "%CD..." from smbc_readdir, so, I want to
smbc_stat this name, so, if libsmbclient translates these names, I
need to get a function which will translate '%' to an appropriate
sequence ;)
I tested now, "%25CD" seems to work fine :)
Thanx :)
