This doesn't seem to be a samba problem I guess.  I deleted all the tbd files in /var/lib/samba and re-installed samba.  No more strange tbd errors, but the printing problem continues, it'll print for a while, then stop in the middle of a page.  I'm guessing it's either a USB problem on my Linux box or a CUPS problem.
