Yes, this is certainly it. We're not going to
fix this though - the security change was painful enough
that I don't feel safe in allowing arbitrary characters
in smb.conf scripts - remember the % substitution can
allow client input here. The best solution is to rewite
prexecs to use a single script.

Sorry for the problem.
