missing printcap option

there's an "lpq cache time" option but no "printcap cache time" option 
which is important to show the actual availability of printers. When I 
started my samba server some time ago I had some CUPS printers from a 
remote machine visible - the machine and its printers are away since a 
long time but samba still shows them. Just rcsmb restart makes them 
disapear. Kurt Pfeiffle noted that he reported the same problem some 
time ago on the samba mailing list. He said there, that reloading of 
the printcap should also be triggered when the users press the F5 key 
in the prіnter view. Could it be that this is a main printing feature 
no one noticed before?
