Assembled Wisdom,

I was trying to help this poor guy on the intertubes who is having some
bizarre issues with running smbget (version 3.4.7) from a cron script?
Is there are some weird environment variables or something I am missing
that is off-limits to the sh in cron that prevents this from working?
