viewing jobs in printer queues broken in 3.0.0?

I see the same thing, when samba has been compiled with or without cups
support.  To make it very obvious, try pausing the queue.  Keep an eye
on the "Printers and Faxes" folder where you can see the number of jobs
per queue, and also the window that lists the jobs in the print queue.
Send a few jobs... perhaps try a refresh, you should soon see the
discrepancies.  Print works, but queue reporting usually doesn't.  Our
test samba3 server is in a different subnet though, so I don't know if
that affects this.  For us this was with RH EL3 beta (cups
1.1.17-13.3.6) and RH 9 (cups 1.1.17-13.3).
