So are you saying there is absolutely positively 1005% NO way to
intercept/sniff the parameters that NT print jobs are passing to samba,
and to map those parameters to the macros samba is expecting, and
finding out which one is incorrect?  Or to trace the whole thing as it
occurs, and see where samba barfs on what it receives from NT, or
whatever?  That seems hard to believe to me.
