[Samba] error: "printing subsystem unavailable" when trying to print test page to samba server

Hey all - I'm experiencing some problems with samba:
I have a samba print server with a number of printers (200+)
When I "browse" to the server, and into the "printers" folder,  I am able to
print a test page from the "properties" window of a printer.
HOWEVER, when I try to print a test-page from another printer, I suddenly
start to get error messages.  The first time I print, I get some strange
"protection fault" message or something. After that, I get a message that
the "printer subsystem" is not available when I try to bring up the
properties on a printer.
After that, I try to browse back to my samba server, and the "printers"
folder is gone, though the network printers are still visible.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
