Something similar to this has been posted to the samba group a few
times, but I didn't see any replys.  Anyway - the last few revisions of
the code that I've checked out (including one from 12:11pm Sept 23 EST)
have broken printing from Win95 machines.

NT prints fine but when I try to print from a 95 box I get

There was an error writing to \\village\laser for printer (HP LaserJet
4M Plus):
There was a problem printing to the printer due to an unknown system
Restart Windows, and the try printer again.
This printer will be set to work offline.
To save your print job in the local printer queue, click OK.

A log level of 10 shows nothing obviously untoward (to someone not
exactly familiar with the code).

Any ideas??
