Funny you ask that.  I immediately tried with smbpasswd -w test after I
sent the message.  It worked fine.  But now I can't issue the command to

trying with -w test to see if I could see a difference in how the file

Since the pa was not cut off before the change I will assume that the
script compensated for the strange character.  

Could someone let me know what to put around # smbpasswd -w pa!sswd in
