This is not a design flaw, it's a deliberate design decision; use of
plaintext passwords on an untrusted network is insecure, and in Ubuntu
8.04 smbspool (and other samba clients) will no longer allow negotiation
of plaintext connections unless the user takes explicit action to enable

To enable plaintext authentication, set 'client plaintext auth = yes' in
the [global] section of /etc/samba/smb.conf.

** Changed in: samba (Ubuntu)
