I added gene to smbusers, which looked ok, and I hoped that would stop
smbpasswd from complaining about a non-existent user, but it didn't.
And it still won't set a passwd hash into the smbpasswd file which is
currently 0600 and owned by root, and zero bytes long. And I was doing
that as root of course...
