Try adding -r to the print command this deletes jobs from the samba queue after it is done spooling.  No need to manually delete the files every night.

Subject: [Samba] Printing irritation

I have a few smb servers running cups or lpr. the problem i have is that
some sites are turing over many print jobs and eventually printing
stops. I find that the /var partition is full and on investigation
/var/spool/samba is full of smbprn.blah.blah files. when i dlete the
files printing is again fine and i have loads of space on the var
partition (1-2gig normally). On some servers i have put a line in
crontab to remove these files at 11pm every night which seems to work ok
but I am not sure it is not just a bodge to get round a problem.

Any ideas would be greatly received.
I have trawled google and mailing lists and it looks like i have created
a new problem!
