I had this problem with Cups and samba and it ended up being a mis-match 
  on the printer options.  The printers were able to print duplex and 
the the default for CUPS on the server was duplex and the default for 
the windows driver was simplex (or was it the other way around?  I can't 
recall at the moment - getting old I guess.)

Anyway, once the default for CUPS and the default for MS  Windows had 
the same setting the extra page issue went away.

It was interesting because not every print job printed an extra page, 
only print jobs that had an odd number of pages to print generated the 
blank page.

This was using the CUPS-Samba drivers with driver download from the 
print server.
