Creating a new printer

The current version cvs won't let us make a new network printer port on an
NT, up until recently we could make one and connect to it like a win95. Now
we get "Could not connect to the printer: Unknown error" and see reference
to :

get_a_printer_2(785) cannot open printer file.......NTPrinter_messenger
NULL pointer, memory not allocated

in the logs.

Printers that had their ports created before installing this samba version
still work, but we cannot connect a new port.  Win95 will connect without
difficulties as before.

Is this the problem Jean-Francois Micouleau is working on in his posts
about spoolss ?
Any suggestions ?
