We had some problems with printing and I had to delete the
/var/cache/samba/printing.tdb file and then restart samba.  Everything
was fine after that.

What clued me in was that the printing.tdb file was far larger than the
other *.tdb files in the /var/cache/samba directory.

You might check it.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.
