Okay, it appears that you have XML-Twig installed and the script is 
functioning from the command line as it should be.

I have this script working in production environments on samba 2.2.2 (machine 
needs to be upgraded..client is stalling ;)) and 2.2.6 configurations without 
any trouble.

Looks good to me..quite similar to what I normally use.  Perhaps someone else 
can shed some light on the issue..though I think the log level should 
probably be a bit higher.
