that's correct.

not quite.

when cli_establish_connection() is used, this function provides support
for clear-text, NULL and encrypted passwords through a password storing

there is only one instance where cli_session_setup is used with a
plain-text password that was expected to be encrypted inside
cli_session_setup, that was in smbwrapper/smbw.c.  i cut/paste the
SMBencrypt and SMBNTencrypt functions in cli_session_setup and placed them
prior to the cli_session_setup call inside the function that called

all other instances of samba code that use cli_session_setup are used to:

- do NULL sessions

- do NT/LM 24 byte password encryptions themselves.

- call cli_establish_connection() which deals with passwords itself.

i mentioned but did not expand in detail that i had done this.
