If any step in cupsaddsmb fails (e.g. wrong password for the user name,
user without SePrintOperatorPrivilege), it will just keep retrying
This can result in problems like locking yourself out very quickly.
It's especially bad since it produces no output if not in verbose mode, so
you can't tell that it's just trying the same thing over and over and will
It would be far better if cupsaddsmb would try only once, and report that
an error happened, and what that error was.
