Why we have it that low, because at least in 2.0.9 it was the only way
to get any feedback to the users when deleting print jobs, otherwise you
removed a job and windows still showed it in the quene.
After commenting out lpq cache time = 1 in the config file and restart
samba, it takes 28 seconds to wiew the printers share - still too long..

Yes, my point exactly ;-)

All printers ar explicitly definded in one included config file like the
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = yes
writable = no
create mode = 0700

There is no [printers] share defined, and we have tried to add load
printers = no without any notisable change.

All drivers are stored on the server.
we have since removed the drivers from the clients and re-installed
them, They now all report Letter in "Paper available", and have A4
assigned to all trays in the printers.
Where is it getting Letter...

we have simmilar problems on nt4 with a4/letter but we do not have any
nt4 machines currently available for testing.
