umm.... you wouldn't _happen_ to be using a solaris or sunos box, would you?

if so, you might have some more info on the nature of a bug that's been 
plaguing samba for about 18 months.

about... three or four people have reported that print jobs get 
corrupted, when sent to postscript printers, from sunos and solaris 
machines.  this includes pi (who are using a modified 1.9.15p8 to compile 
under cc).

we have to make sure that the print queue is empty, before sending a
document.  it also corrupts at about page 17-25...
