After playing around some and e-mailing back and forth with Michael, it
seems that something is broken in the smbpasswd utility.  Here's the
output from the source I compiled about 5 minutes ago ( updated just 
prior to that ).

[root at nowhere /etc]30$ ./smbpasswd -a -m testmachine
./smbpasswd: User "testmachine$" was not found in system password file.

This worked about two weeks ago I know because I am still using the
binary compiled from then.  Is this new expected behavior?  I know there
was talk of machine account in /etc/passwd but I never thought anything
happened with it yet.

I guess all of the comes just after the "OK - Everyone stop using

Thanks again,
