[Samba] XP printing problem fixed

Here's the story so far.

I had a problem serving a printer from samba 2.2.3-6 (the -6 is specific
to Debian I think) to a Windows XP client and found reports of Signal 11
in samba's logfile, so I filed a bug report (Debian Bug#135115) and also
sent the log etc to samba at samba.org.

The problem is now cured and I can print again, following changes I made
to both the client and server. Debian package samba 2.2.3a-1 became
generally available so I've upgraded to that. On the client I had to
"rescue" my WinXP installation due to a motherboard upgrade, and this
had the side-effect of removing the printer entry that had got stuck
there before.

I hope it'll carry on working now: printing since I upgraded from WinME
to XP has been a major headache so far.
