[Samba] Print Job Notification

  I noticed when copying/pasting script sections,
one of the characters fails to be transferred.
It's the ` character.  For some reason, putty
or joe drops the character when pasting.

It's hex 0x60, and on my OpenBSD system,
I'm using joe as the editor.

To insert the character at the current
cursor location:

Press the `/~ key
Press x (for hex)
Enter 60 and press Enter

I had problems using your lpr command script
when I pasted it-turns out the ` was missing
in a couple of places, and I had to change the
spaces at the start of line to tabs.  It all
worked after that.  I do have one question:
what deletes /tmp/junkJ?  Do you use a cron
job to purge it, or delete it manually?
