[Samba] Why does the Win2K print monitor say Paused when printing?

I am running Samba 2.2.5 on a RedHat 6.2 machine. I have the printing setup
using the spoolss functionality with the Win2K driver loaded onto the print$
share of the Samba box. When I print a document from my Win2K machine, while
the job is being sent, the Win2K print monitor (printer window) say the
document is spooling, but as soon as the job actually starts to print, the
job status is blank and the window title bar changes to say the printer is
Paused. Is there any explanation for this? The job does actually print, so
this is more of an annoyance than a problem. Any suggestions?
