[Samba] smbpasswd with password on the command line

I've upgraded my samba server to 3.0.6 and without any warning the 
command smbpasswd no longer accepts passing the user password on the 
command line!

This was a very bad thing for me since the scripts I use to generate all 
my users account stopped working :-(

Anyone had the same problem? Any suggestions before rewriting everything....
