I missed the original post so maybe someone has described this already.
There are some known issues with Samba's print change notify 
implementation in Samba 2.2.  These have been corrected in the Samba 
3.0/HEAD cvs branches.

Mostly likely it is a Samba bug that is causing the client to ignore 
update event to the queue listing.
