[Samba] imprints driver upload failure on 2.2.8a

I installed samba 2.2.8a and imprints 0.0.9b on a freshly up2date Redhat

I tried to install a driver using:

install_printer_drivers.pl -host imprints.sourceforge.net 'HP LaserJet 8100'

The driver files were copied into the /etc/printers/W32X86.  But samba
created another directory,
/etc/printers/W32X86/2 with uid and gid of nobody,nobody.  It then reported
an "ERROR!" and
that the "Installation experienced problems"..

Here is the output.
% /usr/local/imprints/scripts/install_printer_drivers.pl --auth
/home/bkarsh/auth --host imprints.sourceforge.net 'HP LaserJet 8100'

In the log file, it says:

Help would be appreciated.
