pre-2.0.7: changes in print commands init?

I don't use [printers] neither "load printers".
I create a share for every printer.
So far I've used "print command" in the global section to affect every
printer share.

With pre-2.0.7 this doesn't work anymore: I need to put the "print
command" in every print share to make it works. Samba ignores the "print
command" put in the global section.

Is this part of an intentional change to the print command

$ testparm -s |grep "print command"
        print command = lpr -r -P%p %s
$ grep "print command" /etc/samba/smb.conf
print command = lpr -r -l -P %p %s
