I have some pending patches from Mike Sweet in this area (I'm not a  
CUPS/print expert, merely a conduit). WRT this patch, Mike says

	Since Samba expects the domain in the username, it isn't really
	doing the right thing with AUTH_DOMAIN and setting auth-info-required
	to "domain,username,password".  Also, the <cups/backend.h> header
	really isn't needed and will prevent smbspool from working on non-
	CUPS systems.

I should have Mike's smbspool changes through legal next week. Can you  
hold this up until you see his changes?
