I upgraded to 2.2.5 + parse_sec.patch, but this does not seem to improve 
things. Uploading and downloading drivers works great, but the settings 
just aren't propagated when I connect as non-admin user.

I even completely cleared the installed drivers and settings (deleted 
ntprinters.tdb/ntdrivers.tdb + contents of W32X86 directory tree) and 
uploaded the drivers from scratch, but to no avail.

Any ideas?
