printer installation on a HP-UX samba

I have serious trouble with printer driver uploading into samba from
hp-ux with the imprints package.
When I use Win2K's APW to upload printers it works just fine.

First I had samba 2.2.2 here. After lots of ethernsniffing I found:
1. win2k does NOT use spoolss rpc calls to administer printers on a
samba server! at least not such as can be identified as SPOOLSS calls by
the latest version of ethereal. samba (rpcclient) does.
2. somewhere deep in the functions for unicode<->ascii translations must
be a bug related to big- or little-endianess, as on HP-UX the table of
dependend driver files gets thoroughly mangled (containing only _
instead of the filenames) but on linux 2.4 it works fine.

So I thought 'maybe that unicode bug is fixed in 2.2.3a' and gave that
one a try. Not working, either, but now it fails on linux and hp-ux with
the same error message in log.smb (which I will cut out and attach), and
when I go deeper in the logs, it looks to me as if rpcclient connects to
the print$ share as user lp (which is not in the printer admin group of
course), no matter which username it was given by the -U parameter.

any thoughts?
