About samba's print temporary filename.

I guess newer( >= version 2.0.6) samba have a print problem.

my printer config like below

   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = no
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
   guest ok = no
   writable = no
   printable = yes

When I use Red Hat 6.1's "samba-2.0.5a-12", I use any program print, temp
file in
'/var/spool/samba' is like 'ALLIN.pwZVqg' compose of "NetBios Host
Name"."ramdom extension".

But when I use Red Hat 6.2's "samba-2.0.6-9" & newest
"samba-2.0.7-20000425", I use some
program print(like 'Acrobat Reader', 'IE', 'Netscape', 'Word', etc..), temp
file name in
'/var/spool/samba' is like 'manual.pdf', not a unique temp file name.
I think some error will happen when 2 peoples use same filename and print at
same time.

Thank you.
