How about doing a wrapper shellscript instead?

prompt$ cat /usr/local/bin/sambalpr
#! /bin/bash

mkdir -p "$MYDIR"
chmod 700 "$MYDIR"

lpr "$@"

rm -rf "$MYDIR"


Just make sure that /var/spool/samba is writeable by nobody.
And change the command for printing to be the script instead of lpr

at work and asked me how you change a lightbulb in  the bathroom.  "It's very
simple," I said. "You start by filling up the bathtub with water..."
