Opppssss!!! I should have explained this :-)

The debug code had a DEBUG(... "%c", linubuf[i] ...)). So, Carriage
Return (ASCII 0xa) look like this when printed as %c:

.... "8" ":" "
" "

So, I manually "re-touched" these to make them look like "\r" :-)

The smbpasswd file was created by the smbpasswd command and in some
cases edited with vi.

See ya!
