It's time to go back to the future, Kurt. Dump the rusty ol' 2.2.7a and install the kewl new stuff. The 
problem wasn't really so dramatic. After everything 
went fine someone wanted to log info about what just 
happened, boasting how it has successfully added a new 
printer driver and of course kicks the bucket because 
the wrapper function sys_adminlog is only called once 
in all samba in, you guessed it,
_spoolss_addprinterdriver at rpc_server/srv_spoolss_nt.c
so it wasn't tested very intensively.
It's line number 6662 which has to be commented out
together with its continuation line 6663 and you
have no more problems. Until the wrapper funtion is
fixed, you may perhaps chalk up the following info
on a blackboard:
   Print driver name
   Print driver OS
   Administrator name

Thanks again for your assistance.


PS.: A little more info is on sambas bug server:
