>     s3-spoolss: fix notify_printer_status_byname.
>     This took me almost a week to find, so here a little longer explanation:
>     When a windows client registers printer *status* change notifies using
>     spoolss_RemoteFindFirstChangeNotify, it registers them to a print server handle,
>     not a printer handle. We were then correctly monitoring the printer status
>     changes but were sending out the spoolss_RouterReplyPrinterEx via the back-channel
>     connection with job_id set to 0 (which we only may do for monitored printer
>     change status notifies on printer handlers, not print server handles). Windows
>     was then showing a new empty dummy printer icon in the explorer as it cannot
>     route the notify event to the approriate local handle. It also discarded the
>     content of the notify event message of course. With this, printer change notify for
>     pausing, resuming and purging printers nicely works again here.
>     Jerry, Tim and all other printing gurus, please check.

Makes sense to me.  Nice catch.

cheers, jerry
