Yours might be different than ours.  Our Samba server
has no connections to these printers at all; they are
just being used as hard drive storage.

No conversion.  Nothing on Linux is opening it.  It is
being written from Windows to the spool area like a
large hard drive and being read off of the spool area
by another client.  We're not using any of Samba's
print operations.  And sometimes it works fine.
