Samba as printserver and swapspace

I have a Solaris Server with Samba installed on it, so that it can act
like a printserver.

Everything works OK, but there are users who send *really* big files (500
MB), so the swapspace ( /tmp ) gets full and the box crashes.

When I use the unix lp command from another unix pc to send such a really
big file, the /tmp space doesn't get filled up, but only the /var/spool
directory, so everything works ok.

Is it possible to tell samba, for a printer, not to use the swap space,
but just the spool directory ?
