What happens if you take off the redirect to /dev/null and point that
to the logfile - then if smbclient complains about anything when run
inside the script you'll see it in the logfile.

Also what happens if you change the message to "hello" with no
variables?  Just in case something odd is being substituted and causing
a problem.
