Under the Printers share, it should be the list of all the shared printers
on the domain. This list is build by the PDC. Samba doesn't currently
support "printer registration" from other servers. 

For the later, the server name is displayed twice and it's a bug. Before
fixing it, I need to compare against an NT box. I don't remember if the
server name should be prefixed by a double backslash or not in a
PRINTER_INFO_1 struct.
