[Samba] SWAT vs. idealx

Has anyone else had problems with SWAT borking your smb.conf file if you 
specify your smb.conf scripts section like idealx suggests? For example:

add machine script = /usr/local/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w "%u"

When I save that from SWAT, I lose the script parameters inside quotes.  
This caused me some aggrivation this morning when I thought everything 
else worked just fine but the scripts appeared to be failing.  I would 
imagine the use of quotes is so that you can do stuff like add a group 
named "Some Screwed Up Group Name" and not have UNIX bonk out on you for 
having spaces.
