No.  I recognize this.  It is actually a client issue. The
existence of the "Printers and Faxes" folder depends on an
OpenPrinter("server)" call.   When the client has an open
printer handle on the server that suddently goes invalid
(from restarting smbd).  Then the client will have to
reopen the handle.  The problem is that it doesn't always
do this immediately.  There's no bug here if that is all you
were seeing.

cheers, jerry
