this works for me in XPSP1 and Samba 2.2.6

don't worry about permission on the client side - 
the logged in user must be have write access to the share but it sounds
like you've already taken care of that.

there were a bunch of printing fixes in the leadup to 2.2.6

your conf file looks good to me...
