[Samba] unlink data file in cups_job_submit

With samba-2.2.5, cups-1.1.14, and printcap=cups, I find that I have
to explicitly clean up old print data files in /var/spool/samba with a
cron job.

With a traditional LPR, we use -r to tell lpr to remove the file for
us after the file is spooled.  With cups, we send it over ipp, and I
think we should then unlink the data file ourselves.

Does this seem right?
