[Samba] samba3 and CUPS: lpoptions does not work

I'm sorry I forgot to mention that, but I am actually using using
cups-samba-1.1.19 as you suggest. The cups-postscript drivers are
downloading automatically to the clients. Everything works perfectly,
except for the fact that I don't get 2-up printing to work :-(
I suspect that when the job comes from the samba side, the options
applied to the queue with lpoptions are not actually enforced. The other
obvious possibility is that I have not configured the queue properly
(what did I do wrong?).
Basically, the way I did this is:
- Set up a plain CUPS queue and "export" it to samba with cupsaddsmb
(everything works as expected)
- Repeat the same steps as above for a second queue, pointing to the
same printer. I then ran lpoptions -d NX2-118_2up -o number-up=2 and
after that I ran cupsaddsmb.
The new que (NX2-118_2up) works alright (i.e. 2-up printing) from Linux,
but prints 1-up from samba :-(
By the way, is there any way to access CUPS printer instances (e.g.
NX2-118/2up) from samba?
Thanks a lot in advance!
