The WHATSNEW.txt file of 2.0.6 says:
10). Win95 ioctl for print jobs added by Matt.

This is the fix: win9x sees the name* of the spooled job in the spool

I have
printing = lprng

As I said this fix is for win9x, so maybe winnt is unaffected.

* actually the name is a bit mangled, to remove dangerous characters
(spaces, ;, and the like).
