Can't remove pause on printing

I have a problem that if a user sends a file to be printed and checks
remotely and finds the printing of that file has been paused, that
user can't remove the pause as the system says he/she doesn't have
permission to do it.

My smb.conf contains :


   load printers = yes
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   printing = bsd
   security = user

   comment = All Printers
   path = /usr/spool/samba
   browseable = no
   guest ok = no
   writable = no
   printable = yes 

Must I set writable = yes, however I don't want people to be able to
influence others printing.

Thanks , Any help appreciated
