The actual queues are on an NT server.  This server
merely acts as a large spool area.  Are you using
Samba as the spool area only or using Samba printing

Our printouts are not fine (corrupt), and we are not
using a Windows print manager but a DOS BARR machine.

We look forward to using Samba again at a later
version; this might indeed be a bug that gets fixed
