Printing = Cups Problem with current CVS (works in CVS 3 weeks ago)

I have installed yesterdays CVS, and printing=cups under Linux and cups
1.1.10 does'nt work correct any more.

In the last snapshot I used (3 weeks ago) , I had to add printcap name =
cups to the smb.conf, to make printing work (someone of the list
pointed me to this flag)
It works perfect, both the windows queue and the Unix queue show the
right filenames, owners etc.

In the current version, printcap name = cups (with printing = cups)
shows none of my printers anymore.

If I remove printcap name = cups  and after I print a testpage, in the
unixqueue, a file smbprnt.xxxxxx apears (not the correct NTname eg.
Testpage any more, which was a great feature).

The NT queue is completly wrong.
Username, date, filename and filesize are mixed up. For example I am
unable to kill the job.

Thank you very much for your geat work.
