Hum I installed from source and didn't notice this problem.
Anyway, you have to find a way to generate the passwd if you don't already
have a smbpasswd file ( won't do it, it only creates the user)
so this isn't a really big issue. You can use smbpasswd -a <user> to
have the user enter his password (I have a small suid program which allow a
unix user to enter his samba passwd).
