[Samba] smbclient sending output to stdout

Turns out it's outputting that line to stderr and it occurs with all smb
instructions, but the problem remains the same.  I can redirect stderr
to a file, but then I lose all the other output that I want to go to the
mail queue.  Is there some way to only redirect the stderr output from
smb, other than wrapping around every single smb instruction?  Is there
a way to configure sambaclient or smbclientparser to not output to

Subject: [Samba] smbclient sending output to stdout

I'm using smbclient 3.0.22-13.16-SUSE-SLES10.  I'm using the
smbclientparser Perl module to use smbclient from within my Perl
scripts.  Whenever I perform a GET on a file, smb outputs this line to

Domain=[mydomain] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]

This results in hundreds of mail messages in my local mail queue.  How
can I turn this off, so that smbclient doesn't send any output to stdout
during execution of my Perl scripts?
