Problems while running lpq but lpr works... (samba bug?)

I am using samba samba-1.9.18p10 quite happily on a FreeBSD-STABLE
The printing works (the paper comes out of the printer) but when I
examine the printer queue on the Windows machine, it is always empty
(even if the printer is offline).
By turning on the debugging I saw the follwing output in the logfile:
Running the command `lpr -r -s -P kyo /var/spool/samba/mobifi.n23036' gave 0
Here, with the print command, everything works. But later we find
Running the command `lpq -PIPC$' gave 256
which fails of course since there is no printer IPC$. I have
print command = lpr -r -P %p %s
lpq command = lpq -P %p
in my configfile but for some reason, the substitution of %p doesn't
work in the second case... Even if I leave out the lpq command,
the result is the same.
Is there something I am doing wrong or is this a samba bug?
Thanks for any answers in advance; I won't be able to respond
for the next 2 or 3 weeks since I am on holiday starting tomorrow.
