This should be fixed with SVN r2218 (the complete diff between
cupsaddsmb.c from version 1.1.14 [1] and SVN r2218 is attached):
r2218 | mike | 2002-03-14 16:09:08 +0100 (Thu, 14 Mar 2002) | 3 lines

Add -H and -h options to cupsaddsmb, and allow -a to occur anywhere on
the command-line.

Hendrik, do you still have that woody machine where you can test the fix?

OTOH, On etch (cupsys_1.2.7-4etch2 and samba_3.0.24-6etch9) cupsaddsmb
works as expected, so cupsaddsmb works as expected on a Debian stable.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
