[Samba] not force-user'ing while printing?

...currently I am trying to get the following setup up and working
* capisuite (www.capisuite.de) works as an isdn/capi-based fax
solution for the LAN.
* cups is used as printer spooler, there is some "glue" package to
access capisuite through cups, thus generating a "print-to-fax"
* since the clients in the LAN still are all Windows NT 4, samba is
supposed to provide print services to everyone around.
Problem: I set up one user to fax through capisuite, and I actually
intended to set up a printer in samba, doing something, like
force user = printfax
force group = printfax
to assign all print jobs to the fax user. For short: This is not
working; testparm doesn't complain but yet the "force ..."
directives are simply ignored, print jobs always started using the
user account that was starting the job at the workstation.
storage:/usr/src# dpkg -l|grep samba
ii samba 3.0.2a-1 a LanManager-like file and printer
ii samba-common 3.0.2a-1 Samba common files used..
ii samba-doc 3.0.2a-1 Samba documentation
Can anyone point me where to go / peek / read to get this problem
TIA, have a fine afternoon everyone.
