Sigh, I made a mistake in testing. This didn't actually fix the
problem. The tree connect is still rejected after session setup. The
odd thing here is that this mount works against my samba server
Anyway for the purposes of discussion, here is the current patch I've
got. Signing is still busted with this though. Anyone have thoughts on
what we're doing wrong here?
