after updating our printserver from Samba V2.0.6 to V2.2.7 I encountered the
following problem.
Samba does not execute the (root) pre- and postexec within the printers
If you are using these command in another section everything works fine.
Does anybody know if these command are not supported in the printers section

   load printers = yes
   lpq cache time = 30
   print command = lpr -r -P%p %s
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   printing = bsd
   comment = Alle Drucker
   browseable = no
   printable = yes
   public = yes
   path = /var/spool/samba/%d
   create mode = 0700
   lpq command = lpq -P%p
   root preexec = mkdir -p /var/spool/samba/%d; chmod 700
/var/spool/samba/%d; chown %u: /var/spool/samba/%d
   root postexec = rm -rf /var/spool/samba/%d

BTW how can I check execution of preexec-commands? I didn't find entry in
%m.log ...  :-(
