Why so low? The default is 30 seconds. This is probably one
reason for your slow down... Remember that each smbd is single
threaded and the lpq command blocks IIRC (assuming it needs to
retreive the queue from the lpd daemon).
Are all the printers available on the net? The ports thing should be
trivial since it is hard coded as "Samba Printer Port" and is a single
get_a_prrinter_2() call. Are you using an enumports script by any chance?

Will need to look. Are these using printer driver on the server?
Win2k or WInNT4 clients?
