bug in cupsaddsmb (fixed in 1.1.16?) , some files are not copied right.

Problem : 
automatic downloading of adobe drivers added with cupsaddsmb fails with
"unable to open file adopeps4.drv" at the end of install on win98 client

cupsaddsmb sends a 
rpcclient localhost -N -U'root%pass' -c 'adddriver "Windows 4.0"
which forgets adobeps4.drv; 

the proper command should read :
rpcclient localhost -N -U'root%pass' -c 'adddriver "Windows 4.0"
