OSX Authentication box

What I am doing is turning file sharing on and off on a Mac. The  
standard shell script one might use to do this doesn't seem to work  
when the file sharing control panel is in its "locked" state.

When it is locked, I was using Applescript to unlock it. But that  
requires putting in the password and then closing the dialog box.  
That's where the problem is coming from.
