You should be telling us which print subsystem you have installed. CUPS?
LPRng? Which version?

You should also be telling us, which smb.conf settings related to printing
your Samba daemon is using.
"testparm -v | egrep '(print|lp|enumport|driv|spool|\[|path)'"

It is well possible that you are using a customized "print command",
and have forgotten to include a ";rm %s" at the end....
