[Samba] Odd LPQ behavior in 3.0.x

I changed the 'lpq cache time' parameter to 5 (from the default) and the
problem seems to have gone away. The status (Paused/Printing, or nothing
for jobs that are queued) has returned. However, now the Pages are all N/A
(as it was before I upgraded), and the size field is back (but static).
The port field is blank...
Before changing this parameter, as I noted below, Status was missing, but
pages was listed (and dynamic) as was size (same). Now I only get this on
incoming jobs (jobs with a "Spooling" status). I'm curious if there is any
good documentation on how to expect this to work... the printing stuff
doesn't cover this particular part of it too much.
I will apply the patch and let you know -- Samba has been segfaulting
somewhat too on 3.0.9, so I'm hoping this will cure that as well.
