JFileChooser fails to resolve DFS links on Windows Vista SP2

        Description

        DFS links in DFS shares cannot be resolved with javax.swing.JFileChooser
        class of Java SE 6 on Windows Vista SP2: the link cannot be opened.
        The behavior is strictly reproducible.
        Windows Vista SP2 Explorer however opens that type of links just fine
        and shows the contents of the directory opened.

        Windows Vista SP1 Explorer obviously cannot handle DFS links at all, and
        issues the following error message: 'Z:\DFSLINK is not accessible'.

        JFileChooser on Windows 7 behaves just like on Windows Vista SP2.
