[Samba] New to the list and possible dumb question

I'm running RedHat 7.3 and samba (2.2.5-1). I'm having problems when a
particular accounting application tries to print to a printer via the copy
command. This method of printing seems to work fine on my NT print server.
And if I map to the printer on my samba server it works like a champ. I'm
using share level security and the guest account at the moment.

I've checked the error logs and turned the debugging way up. The only thing
I can tell is it seems to drop the last character of the printer name and
the logs show that it can't find the printer at that point.

Any ideas? Thanks much.
