Sounds promising, if you have a patch I will try it. 

I noticed another strangeness with NT4. I have two printers configured 
exactly the same on a Samba server and the NT 4 client reports access denied 
for both printers with plain 2.21a Samba. However I can print on one printer
and not on the other ;-)
This seems to be the same for all NT clients.
So sometimes NT4 will ignore the failure to open the printer with admin
capabilities and at least print. The printer window will still say "access 
denied". I will take a look at the logs tomorrow.
