Yes, it sounds like this - but how could that happen? BTW it doesn't
matter which program on the NT client is used, Acrobat Reader, WinWord,
WordPerfect and others, even the test page failes.
What I should have added:
Once a print job was rejected, all subsequent print jobs will be
rejected too. A "logout - logon again" is needed, sometimes even a
reboot (and once, IIRC, printing a test page also helped, but since that
it always failed, too).

Usually not, only when there was a print error (which happens sometimes,
it's a network printer whose network interface doesn't handle properly
the case that the printer is powered off).

They are kept now:
~$ ll /var/spool/samba/print/

This was a printer test page from the problematic client, this time it
Looks good, doesn't it?
