slow printing.

I'm having an issue with a samba print server.  I have the following in the

        workgroup = DOMAINNAME
        netbios name = SERVERNAME
        server string = Samba Server
        security = DOMAIN
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        password server = NTDOMAINPDC
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 50
        socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
        os level = 10
        local master = No
        dns proxy = No
        wins server = #.#.#.#

        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        guest ok = Yes
        print ok = Yes
        browseable = No

The printer is a HP LaserJet 4M setup with redhat print-tool in lpd.  Files
print, but it appears that each page is sent separately to the printer with
enough time between them for the printer to stop and sometimes even "cool down".
Has anyone experienced this issue?
