Unable to delete printers from windows client

I'm Using Samba 3.0.8pre1 and cups.
I wrote a little "deleteprinter" - program which successfully deletes the cups
printer, when deleting the printer from the "Printers" subfolder on the Samba
server from a Windows client.
Nevertheless the printer is still visible in the printer list.
I found, that the reload_services call does not function, because the printer
services are not deleted:
loadparm.c - lp_killunused() does not delete autoloaded services.
loadparm.c - lp_add_one_printer() marks the printer services autoloaded (I
have only a [printers] - section in my smb.conf).
So the deleted printer service is not removed from the service list.
