[Samba] Samba - cannot print multiple copies

I do not have that option for notepad, but I do for wordpad. I get two copies when I ask
for it. No problem.
Here is my smb.conf file for my printer. Don't be mystified by the long
print command. That is just to capture the print job name for debugging
stuff and to get a decent display of the job name in the windows print
queue. I mean, who need to see
The command is really just: /usr/bin/lpr -Pps -J"$a" %s; rm %s
where a is captured from the J variable passed by windows to the samba
server. Otherwise, the name is just too long to display, sometimes. If you
don't use the %J variable, you get the silly smbprn.000400.CFI7Uf name.

/usr/bin/lpr -Pps -J"$a" %s;\
lpq command = /usr/bin/lpq -Pps
lprm command = /usr/bin/lprm -Pps %j
lppause command = /usr/sbin/lpc hold z53 %j
lpresume command = /usr/sbin/lpc release z53 %j
