[Samba] Weird "add wizard" bug? in 2.2.5 and previous?

I should mention the following IMPORTANT information:

- Under Windows NT 4 SP6 (build 1381), no printer is shown
  in the "Printers" window.

- Under Windows 2000 SP2, it works fine. I haven't tested
  other "service packs".

Is it a Win NT bug? (must be ;-) .

Thank you,
Pierre B.
