here we have exactly the same problem. Already tested with different
version of lprng. Already reported to samba bugs. The only solution I found
is the following one (under Linux):

lpq command = /usr/bin/lpq -P %p | /bin/head -15

Of course using this command you'll see only the first 10 jobs in the
printer queue.

Hope it helps !
