A couple of times (especially when sorting out my scripts for the
umpteenth time), I have deleted a unix user before the smb user. This
caused smbpasswd to panic and not delete the smb user. As far as I can
tell, this doesn't present a security issue, as if there is no user in
/etc/passwd then you cannot use the account in samba anyway, however, it
would be nice for smbpasswd, if passed the -x argument didn't look for the
user in /etc/passwd, just to save hand-editing the smbpasswd file.
Thanks for listening.
