Samba 2.2.0 printer defaults

I'm using samba-2.2.0 on Solaris 2.6.
As "printer admin" I set up some printers
with their document defaults on the samba server
for public use. All seams okay.

        path = /path/to/printer/dir
        guest ok = no
        browseable = yes
        read only = yes
        write list = admin
	comment = HP Printer
	printer = myprinter
	path = /tmp
	browseable = yes
	printable = yes
	public = yes
	writable = no
	create mode = 0700

When I'm a normal user I get wrong default paper sizes
for all my printers. 

e.g.:  admin   user
        A3	A4
        A4	A4 small
        A4	letter
        folio	quarto

All other things work, browsing, printing, ...
All my printers are HP Postscript printers.
I have german Window-NT Clients.

I also have a NT-Server serving these printers
and the document defaults are right there.

What's wrong?
