Oh damn. I recently added a patch to widen the fields
in the smbpasswd file to allow easier maintenance.

I thought I'd got the code so that it wouldn't overwrite
older style entries with the smaller [U] or [W] fields.

Newer entries would be added with the spaces.

Could someone try the latest CVS code and test if
the two cases above are breaking the code that parses
the smbpasswd file ?

In my tests everything seems to work ok.
