I am writing this because the logs tell me to. ;-) "please report to 
samba-technical at samba.org !"

I am still battling with my printers which are set up as "local printer" 
+ "local port" (which happens to be pointing to '\\smbsrv\myprn') and 
all show offline, but can actually be printed too.

The following error happens if I try to switch them to "Use Online" from 
my win xp pro sp2 client.

It has now been a full week of confused users and pretty soon I'll have 
to downgrade if this stays this way.


PS: My irc nick is "BigBear" I'll be on quite often over the weekend, 
hoping that somebody can help me getting to the bottom of this.
