printer status says, "Access denied" from win2k

Actually, I'm on 2.2.x...  Whenever I right click on a SMB printer, explorer
crashes on Win2k.  On Win95, shell.dll crashes.  This is very bizarre.  Has
anyone else seen this happen.  It happens on machines all over my network.

Thanks in Advance...

Have you recently upgraded from samba 2.0.x to 2.2.x?

If you have this will cause the problem you mention.  Just remove the
printer and re-install it on the windows side.
