[Samba] samba forgetting printers

I've a debian sid based samba 3.0.2a-1 installation running on one of
our customers' servers.

Everything works nicely (samba 3 & LDAP rocks!!!!), except for the
printers. Upon each start, samba has all printers visible and ready.
smbclient -L localhost shows the printer shares and all windoze clients
can print to them.

However, after some time (a day or so), samba simply forgets the
printers. No log message, no nothing. smbclient -L localhost on the
server really shows, that there are no more printers there and nobody
can print from windoze anymore. 

Only when I restart samba, the printers appear again.

the printer side is handled by cups 1.1.20final+cvs20040330-1.

Any ideas?

happy hacking
