[Samba] Sending popup message via smbclient to w2k and winxpmachines

Thanks for the pointer Adam, it got me to look at the calling program a bit
more which showed that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable was being set to "", and
was then exported. After exporting the variable in my script, pop-up
messages began to appear on my users desktops. All I need now is get the
message and logfile to show the real file name of the job and not the Samba
name - but that's another issue...

Try running "set > env-cmd.txt" from the command line and then run "set >
env-script.txt" from within the script and then compare the list of
environment variables, as it may not be LD_LIBRARY_PATH at fault. grep them
for 'lib' perhaps.

Oh - the script isn't running in a chroot jail or anything is it?  It could
be that smbclient can find the library, but it doesn't have permission to
access it.
