[Samba] Panic in Samba 3.0.3Pre2

I have now upgraded to 3.0.3RC1 and the panic still occurs. It would appear to happen only when I install HP print drivers though, I have installed brother and Epson drivers without any issues at all.

When I ran the server on 2.2.8 for initial testing it was stable, but due to the restriction in the maximum printer name length I had to jump to version 3. 

I would welcome any other suggestions from anyone, before I confine myself back to my windows server for now.

This points towards a heap corruption bug.  Doesn't
ring a bell.  Cna you reproduce this at will ?  If
so what do I need to do ?

3.0.3rc1 will be out later today we hope.  And while
I can't say that for sure that this bug is addressed,
you should test. We will also be spending a good bit
of time stressing this release under valgrind before
we hit 3.0.3.
