SV_TYPE_PRINTQ_SERVER flag always true?

I hope this is the right list for this.  In trying to diagnose a printer 
browsing problem on our Window machines, we discovered that all of our 
Samba 2.2.3a and 2.0.9 servers in the Browse List were registering with the 
SV_TYPE_PRINTQ_SERVER flag, meaning they had a print queue.  This was true 
even for servers who didn't have printers at all.  This will pose a problem 
for us soon because we will have about 50 Sun servers running Samba in the 
near future, at least half of which will be over slow connections.  I 
tracked down where this value is set in param/loadparm.c and was wondering 
(I don't see why it would be a problem) if I should just comment out that 
one line so that our servers don't announce as print queue servers?  Or is 
there a reason that this value is always set?
