I've been using the SPOOLSS printing support with 2.2.2 (RH7.1) with a mix
of W2000 and NT4 clients. On moving to 2.2.3a, (same smb.conf) I find that
any changes to document defaults made under NT4 are not remembered, W2000
clients just keep reporting "failed to open" on opening the printer (all
these done as administrator). Switching back to 2.2.2 and everything is OK
again. Anyone else had similar problems?
