I'm the one who posted the message to the other thread that suggested adding
the -J'%J' to the print command setting in smb.conf. FYI, I picked this from
someone else on this list several months ago.

I just tested to see if my print job names were being similarly truncated
and they are not. I specifically tested printing from MS Word and all was

For comparison, I'm running Samba 2.2.1a+LDAP patch on RedHat 7.1. The
client I test-printed from is Win2K Pro SP 2. The printer (not that it
should matter) is an HP 5Si. Obviously, I'm using LPRng (3.7.4-22 from RPM).

Can you determine if names are being truncated consistently to a specific
length? Does printing from all clients/different client OS exhibit the same
behavior? (Grasping at straws here)
