[Samba] Samba spoolfile name

I am running Samba 2.2.7a as my DPC in a small business network with win98/ME clients.
A big Fiery printer/scanner/copier device is also part of this network. It has its own printserver.
Since Win98/ME can not print to an LPD queue directly, I have setup Samba to spool the printjobs send by the clients to the Fiery server.
All is working well, but there is a small problem.
This Fiery server is controlled by its own control software, installed on one of the clients.
The program shows all jobs in the server's queue, but they all have names like 'smbprn.57834772.sefkjbv'.
Since I sometimes have to print the same job hundreds if times, I am not always able to find the right job in the list, because of those abstract names.

So my question is: How can I make Samba spool files with the original jobname, as sent by the client, to the Fiery server?
I know it is possible to echo the original jobname to a file, but I would be forced to keep a complete listing of all printjobs that way.

Can Anyone help me?
