But alas, printing with IPP is fine. :-)

I'm seeing the same problem, with either 2.2.8a and 3.0.0.b3 on the
print server and Windows XP on the print client.  Printing from *NIX
clients with CUPS works fine.

Note that this still doesn't mean the problem is definitely in Samba
(although see the WERR_ACCESS_DENIED error below).  It could be a
problem with the cups-samba drivers themselves.  I'm using cups-1.1.18
and cups-samba-1.1.18.

Anyway, I turned on log level 9 for samba, but the resulting log file
was pretty overwhelming.  There's at least one WERR_ACCESS_DENIED
returned from _something_, but the log is so noisy I can't tell what the
return came from.

I've made the full debug log available for download at:
