[Samba] Odd LPQ behavior in 3.0.x

Here is what I'm seeing after upgrading to 3.0.x:

1) Jobs no longer properly report their status, using LPRng's lpq. I see, 
instead, no listing for status and a listing for number of pages in the 
job. While that is also useful information, it does not allow me to act on 
jobs as I'd like to (resume/pause/etc).

2) Basically EVERY job that has ever printed via Samba on that printer 
since I've upgraded is listed in the queue. This is not a case of 
lpd_done_jobs in LPRng causing this -- the jobs are NOT there in lpq. If 
the queue is empty in LPRng, there will still be hundreds of jobs listed 
in the Windows queue.

Can anyone give me an idea of how to attack this problem?
