an admin user may not be the same as a printer
admin.  Your message isn't clear on what is considered to
be an 'admin' user.

give me more details and we'll figure out what is going on.

This works fine.  smbd does use an 'lpq cache time' since
we cache the queue listing along with some addition job

Samba cannot give the job to the printing system until the
client has spooled the entire job to us.  SOrry.
