I am driving Suse 8.2, samba 2.2.7a, cups 1.1.18

As I mentioned recently I cannot see the cups printer queues from a 
windows client even if lpq -Pprinter on the cups server gives the 
correct status.
I tested a litte more and got the following results:

1.) If I configure samba to
	printing = CUPS
	printcap name = CUPS
     I can see all queue entries in the windows status panel, too -- 
except for those jobs, that were sent by users with account names >= 8 
characters. Is this a bug?

2.) If I configure samba to
	printing = sysv
	printcap name = CUPS
	lpq command = lpstat -o %p
   I can see the jobs only as they appear on the samba-/cups-server. 
They disappear from the status panel immediatly when the spooling is 
finished. Should it work? Anybody else has this problem?
