	This is probbaly best acked on samba at 
	samba-technical the implementation discussion group.

	If you have a [printers] share, new printers are
	noticed when the smb.conf file is reread: try
	sending a SIGHUP to smbd.  However: if you 
	are testing from a PC client instead of smbclient,
	remember to disconnect and reconnect the PC from 
	Samba, or it won't see the new printer.
