How to include system files with smbtar?

I recently upgraded to 1.9.18p8, and noticed that smbtar no longer  
automatically includes system files. I can't seem to find a way to include  
the 'tarmode system' command in the smbtar shell script. If I add a -c  
"tarmode system" to the $SMBCLIENT command line at the end of the smbtar  
shell script, I get no tarred files at all.

Can anybody help me with this?

BTW, 'tarmode system' seems to be undocumented. (As are nosystem, hidden,  
nohidden, verbose, noquiet, quite, noverbose.) I had to check the clitar.c  
source to find this.
