Don't know what you want to accomplish with that script, but yes,
something changed in between 2.0.5 and 2.0.6 as regards to password
sync. This happened to solve problems samba had when "chatting" with
/bin/passwd on some systems.
If that change broke your script, you can send that script to samba-bugs
with details.
