[printers] and [homes] masking

the processing in find_service in smbd/service.c seems to suggest that if
there is a user called ljet4 and printcap entry called ljet4, then no one
will be able to connect to the printer, because,
find service will try first for a [homes] share, and if that succeeds, will
return. However, the [homes] share should not be printable, so in
make_connection in smbd/service.c we will reject the attempt to connect a
printer share which is not printable.
I think that people might find it a tad difficult to debug this situation.
