Description Waider 2003-04-30 04:24:09 UTC
Due to changes in the argument parsing in smbclient, smbtar no longer works.
(Current SAMBA_3_0 CVS, as opposed to 3.0alpha23, but 3.0alpha23 is the only
version I get to select). currently I'm getting a segv; other results have
included creating a file called \\server\share.tar, and bombing with a usage

a patch is available under bug 206 which I believe fixes this problem.

smbclient //server/share password1 -U user%password2 -Tc foo.tar

where password2 is ignored.
