Hallo all,

does everyone have a good idea to solve that issue:

- samba 3.0.8
- printing system LPRNG (Cups is not possible here)
- printing works fine up to about 10 pages

- on the panel of the printer there is a "Overflow Message"
- former there was samba 3.0.2 - without this issue.

- In the log of the affected workstation apears the following:
  ERROR: string overflow by 1 (32 - 21) in safe_strcpy [<name of the

- there are empty logs in /var/spool/<printername>/log

Thanks for every good idea.
