[Samba] extra page printing

I have found another printing problem on my print server.  The printer is an
HP2000C. Printing using cups.  The print queue is set up as a RAW printer.
It should be just pass through.  I am using the same print driver as on the
Novell that works fine.  The problem is before each print job a single page
gets printed with a %! at the top of the page and nothing else.  This
problem does not show up on  my other printers that are set up the same.  I
cannot find anything on cups that would cause this so I am posting it up
here hoping someone has an idea.  I don't think it the driver because it
doesn't show up on the Novell PS but who knows.
RH 7.3
Samba 225
cups 1.1.15

Thank you.
