There was a recent thread that suggested that for LPRng,
the print command in smb.conf should look like this:

print command = lpr -r -P%p -J '%J' %s

The change is marked.  With that, the Windows print job name appears
instead of the "smbprn..." name on the banner page.

This is an odd problem.  In earlier versions of Samba, *no* change
was needed to the default print command for LPRng.
