[Samba] How do I get the @#$$% job name to show instead of smbprn.xxxxxx. xxxxxx?

Still at it....

Clients:  Win2k SP2
Server: OpenBSD 3.2
LPRng 3.8.20
Samba 2.7.pre1
Printer:  Lanier 2138
Driver:  Ricoh RPCS

Tried:  disable spoolss yes/no (on separate samba servers)

  If I print through Samba/LPRng, I get
the document name of smbprn.xxxxxx.xxxxxx
displayed in the 2138's log.

If I print directly to LPRng through a
Standard TCP/IP port, I get the correct
file name displayed.

Adding the -J%J parameter to the Print Command line
has no effect.  Other changes to the Print Command
(-U%m) work as advertised.

Various test methods ALL show that %J consists of the
correct file name, vice the smbprn.xxxxxx.xxxxxx string.
Yet smbprn.xxxxxx.xxxxxx is all that is ever passed on
to the printer...

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?  If you've seen
it and know the solution, I'd really like to hear from you.
