Why is NT smarter than Samba for Printing.

The problem is that NT queus it all while the default setup of Unix remote
printing is to send the file directly to the JD printer with the expectation
it will queue the jobs.

If you want to stop the whining set up a bounce queue entry in your printcap
to force sever queueing and compensating for the JD.

This will solve the problem as I see it, it worked for me.

The problem is not with Samba it is in fact doing exactly what it should do.
