My samba admin user has a password with a single quote in it. Because of
the way the password is sent to samba, the quote messes up parsing:
Running command: smbclient //localhost/print\$ -N -U'smbadmin%*'*' -c
'mkdir W32X86;put /var/spool/cups/tmp/42f221d06746a W32X86/liblab.ppd;put
sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `''
sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of file
If it were possible to pass the password on the command line (which I see
is a requested feature) it *might* be possible to manually URI encode the
quote so this wouldn't occur.
