Samba 2.2.0-alpha0 bug with "add user script"?

It doesn't seem to work anymore.

I have a smb.conf file (generated by 2.2.0-a0 swat) containing:

add user script = /usr/local/bin/smb_add_user %u

And /usr/local/bin/smb_add_user contains:

echo "date $0 $*" >> /tmp/smb_adduser.log

Well, needless to say, users without Unix accounts cannot log in, and
/tmp/smb_adduser.log isn't even created...
