OK, I think I saw in your earlier posts that you are using open permissions on the /export/spool 
dir. Just for completeness sake, have you tried it in a really open dir, like /tmp?

I also use CUPS, but I have not set up SAMBA to use the printing = cups option. I was trying to 
troubleshoot something else when I turned it off, never turned it back on. I am using printing = 
lprng. My [pdf] section looks just like yours. The main difference is that I am using /tmp as a 
"spool" for the pdf script to work in.
