I do not know but I would suspect a network problem. You might look at
tcpdump and watch what is being sent back and forth. This sounds like it
might be a timeout problem.
Is there a delay in starting printing or just slow printing once the job
And, I would look at how quick the print file is being transfered to the
samba server by the time in your temporary print file on samba.
And, I would have top running to see what lpr is doing during this time.
And, I would look at the logs in the printer queue.
