Have you setup any access control on the printers?  That *might*

We submitted (too late...) patches for 2.0.7 that get rid of the
external commands completely and implement everything using CUPS
API calls internally.  From all the testing we did it seems to be

I'll be putting the patches up on the Bazaar until the next SAMBA
release is out...
