Description of problem:
When you enter a password in the printconf SMB Share queue type it automatically
adds a '\' to escape special characters. This '\' goes into the
/var/spool/lpd/PRINTQ/script.cfg file, and is sent to
/usr/share/printconf/util/smbprint, which does not work, since the password has
an extra '\' in it.
For example: if you enter
as your password in printconf, it will show up as
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a SMB queue printer in printconf
2.Enter a password with a ! character.
3.I don't know if any other chars have the same problem
