RedHat 6.0, Samba 2.0.3 and printing

I had an odd occurrence today and I was wondering if anyone else could
confirm that this was the case.

I was working on a RH6.0 install that had Samba 2.0.3 on it from the RH CD.

It seems to have been compiled with printing set to SYSV or with the
various print commands set to lp.

Printing did not work.  I upgraded to Samba 2.0.5a off of the RedHat web
site, and it all worked again.

Is it a known problem?  Not like RedHat to stuff up like this, eh :-)
