Reported in Debian:
The manpage of smbclient tells the user to use cat for a useless case.
cat mymessage.txt | smbclient -M FRED
smbclient -M FRED < mymessage.txt

Patch with suggested way to fix this bug
Fixed with revision 1221.
Thanks for reporting!
If I'm correct, this fix is not yet in released 3.2.0-pre2 while r1220 was.
I checked samba-3.2.0pre2 and the manpage of smbclient is correct:
One useful trick is to pipe the message through
smbclient. For example: smbclient -M FRED < mymessage.txt will send the message in the file
to the machine FRED.
