Description Tim Waugh 2003-09-10 10:11:15 EDT
Description of problem:
The meaning of the -P option to smbclient has changed dramatically, with no
warnings ever given that it would happen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

It *used* to mean 'use this share as a printer'.  It *now* means 'use stored
machine account password'.

This option was documented in the --help output, so other people may be using it.

Note: this is used by redhat-config-printer, and causes it to break.
