Problem in working with domain DFS links

>From my short (and maybe wrong :-)) experience, in the case of the
GET_DFS_REFERRAL request, the request is for a specific path in the
current tid. The parameter for this request is in the current tid, and
so we can compare it to this tid's name and not to any connected tid.

Only the result of this request may point to another server/share.

Am I wrong here?

It probably is, that's an extra check I could add. But remember
I have to map the dfs sharename to a tid first.
