I noticed this bug when I first started using smbtar (samba 1.9.17p1)
however I assumed that it would have been noticed and fixed by the next
release. It is as follows:
If you specify a blocksize with the -b blocksize parameter to smbtar then
you get an error back from smbclient, complaining about specifying the
blocksize after the b parmater to -T, the following simple change seems to
solve the problem:

       case "$OPTARG" in

 	*)      echo >&2 "$0: Error, block size not numeric: -b $OPTARG

I don't think i've missed anything stupid
