[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#436188: smbclient: /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb failed

Package: smbclient
Version: 3.0.25b-1+b1
Severity: normal


I have just noticed that smbclient 3.0.25b-1+b1 failed CUPS connection
with samba backend.  That is, CUPS reports '/usr/lib/cups/backend/smb
failed'.  After downgrading to version 3.0.25b-1, however, this problem
disappeared.  So, I guess there might be some problems with the
up-to-date version of smbclient.

BTW, the printer I'm using is HP Laserjet 2420 installed on a WinNT box,
which works properly through CUPS with samba before upgrading to version
