Samba/CUPS cleanup issue

We are converting our Samba setup from using System V style printing to
CUPS and it is working brilliantly.

The only issue I have found is that all the temporary Samba spool files
(smbprn.*) remain in the spool directory after printing.  They are not
deleted like they were under System V printing.

It does not take long to fill up the disk partition on our larger
offices!!!  I am working around it at the moment with a cron job to
cleanup the spool files.

Is this a bug or have I missed something here????

Many thanks,
