[Samba] Problem uploading printer driver on 2.2.8a (FreeBSD 4.8)

I have an annoying problem. I have declared a printer for which I want Samba to download drivers onto the clients.
So I have configured print$ share, the printer itself (by BSD printing), then connect the printer to my W2K client (SP3 with ALL RPC updates applied, including today's one).
And it fails :
- on the windows side, I have a popup : unable to install <name of the driver> driver. Operation could not be completed.
- on the samba side, I get an internal error :

  pop_sec_ctx (1014, 1014) - sec_ctx_stack_ndx = 0

I must say that some (if not all, I can't say) of the printer driver files _are_ uploaded to the print$ share. But it fails to register, it seems.
Samba is in PDC mode (too much hassle with rights before, when beeing a simple 'security=user' server : "service :{{SID}} not found" messages, SID corresponding to "Printers" on the W2K client, according to he registry ). Shares all are accessible with no noticeable messages in the logs.
I don't know what to say more. I can provide smb.conf on request if needed.
Any ideas about this ?
