It doesn't do it straight away will chunter along at the
command line debug level until it's read in smb.conf :-).

This was noticed by luke a while back and I believe it has been changed in
the NTDOM branch version of smbclient, perhaps it should be changed in the

seen a couple of messages on Samba Bugs complaining about this one...
