Thanks Craig.

I added gene to smbusers, which looked ok, and I hoped that would stop 
smbpasswd from complaining about a non-existent user, but it didn't.  

And it still won't set a passwd hash into the smbpasswd file which is 
currently 0600 and owned by root, and zero bytes long.  And I was doing 
that as root of course...
