[Samba] using smbpasswd noninteractively?

hi folks,

I'd like to use smbpasswd without getting promted for the pw, there is 
the -s switch making smbpasswd read from stdin but it still wants to 
have the pw twice and two "returns". I tried  feeding it with "passwd \r 
passwd \r" and calling smbpasswd from python using os.popen2() and 
writing to the "stdin" file object but everything failed so far.

any ideas?
