[Samba] "advanced printing features" setting not saved

we run SuSE8.2 with Samba 2.2.7a-78 (SuSE's own version?!) and Windows 
XP clients. After an update to 3.0.0, everything works well (user access 
on file services and printing), but we can't save the "advanced printing 
features(?)" (german: "Erweiterte Druckfunktionen aktivieren") flag 
(WinXP -> Settings -> any printer -> Advanced) anymore.
This holds for all our (HP-)printers while the duplex option is stored 
on the samba server. This one flag is always reset to disabled without 
any warning or error message.

A clean install of samba 3.0.0 did not change anything about this 
problem. Since no user can print duplex or n-to-1 with samba 3.0.0, I 
had to install the old samba version again.

Is there any known solution for this problem?
In which files are the printer settings stored on the samba server? I 
didn't find anything about that topic.

thanks for your help!
