This is a known bug in 2.2.3a.
Download the latest 2.2 branch from CVS and use that instead.

> Hi - I've managed to successfully set up our printer as per the
> Printing HOW-TO, I'm able to print to the printer and upload
> drivers using the Win NT print properties window.
> The problem I'm having is that I can't set any properties for the
> printer (ie. change the base model from HP 4050 to HP 4050 TN,
> set default paper trays / paper trey assignments).
> Basically whatever settings I make are lost as soon as I close
> the printer properties window - all settings revert to default
> when I reopen window.
> What I'm trying to do is have a couple of shares set up for the
> printer - once set to print to tray 1, one set to print to tray 2, etc.
> I'm logged in with admin (root) privileges - and as I said I can
> upload drivers, etc. fine... and this is picked up by users
> installing the printer on their machines - just that they all
> come in as default setup.
> I've found references to similar problems on the list archives,
> but no solutions offered. can anyone give me any insights /
> pointers to tests / documentation that will help me track down
> the problem.
