I'm running Samba 2.27 on RH8 system. I've got samba as the print
spooler for Windows XP clients and using winbind as the user validation
against my Win2K DC. Permissions on the spool directory are root root
with the sticky bit on. Clients can delete their own jobs from the que,
but the spool directory is not being expunged of print jobs and the last
job constantly displays in the client que window. I have not been able
to figure out how to resolve this as occasionally people freak out when
they see older jobs in the print que and wonder if it is stuck. For
whatever reason, the print process is unable to remove the print job
from the spool directory after it is sent to the lpd process for
