What you can do to troubleshoot your problem, narrow your search, and to ask 
for assistance in the right place is to re-create the scenario with an 
attempt to print to CUPS via IPP instead of Samba. This is a more direct 
route and takes Samba out of the picture. If the problem is ameliorated then 
maybe the issue is Samba related. If printing via IPP doesn't ameliorate the 
problem then you know for sure that Samba is not the place to look.
