Something like this:

Which according to the cvs log:

Fixes this. But I don't see a patch in cvs to
source/rpc_server/srv_spoolss_nt.c that relates to this. So is the fix
above sufficient?

No, we didn't have a patch for this (although you can check for yourself
 in cvs at http://cvs.mandrakesoft.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/SPECS/samba/)

Well, I maintain samba/samba3 in Mandrake, and a number of people have
implied that there are patches for 2.2.8a which should be applied (and I
would like to see the one for the cups printer list myself) ... but
there is no list available of those that should be applied ... so
distributors must guess from cvs logs what should be applied (which IMHO
is not the ideal situation for the samba team if they want their
software to work out-the-box on the majority of deployments). And with a
potential switch to samba-3.0.0 just before the upcoming 9.2, I would
prefer not to have to go chasing after patches for 2.2.8a (I have enough
to test with samba3).
