cupsd *must* be completely up and running for Samba to pick up the
printer list.

* Make sure that cupsd is started well before smbd (and make sure
   that you get a return code of 0 for the "lpstat -r" before you
   try to start smbd

* Make sure that CUPS writes a "printcap" file by enabling the
   "Printcap /etc/printcap" directive in cupsd.conf.
