[STR New]

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
/usr/share/cups/drivers/ps5ui.dll W32X86/ps5ui.dll;put
/usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript.hlp W32X86/pscript.hlp;put
/usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript.ntf W32X86/pscript.ntf;put
/usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript5.dll W32X86/pscript5.dll'
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.
