we have an issue with standard_sub() in NT printing. NT spoolssd calls
down from an IPC$ share (not, repeat, not, a connection to
\\server\printername share or [printers] section of smb.conf).
this means that standard_sub() is going to pick up the substitution
properties of the IPC$ share in printing/printing.c (not, repeat, not, the
properties of the \\server\printname share or [printers] section of
what is going to be done about this?
win9x users connect to \\server\printname, and get samba to reconfigure
acourding to smb.conf %u, %P, Pp, %S etc which are all service-dependent
winnt users will not get this, they will get unexpected behaviour.
according to the rule of least surprises, my proposed fix is to
global/search/replace all printing/printing.c code that contains a pointer
to a connection_struct and calls standard_sub() with calls to
it's broke, so trash it and bring both win9x and winnt into line.
objections or better suggestions, anyone?
