[Samba] W9x doesn't download printer drivers

My W9x clients cannot download printer driver from samba 3.0.2rc1 with 
cups 1.1.17, while w2k clients do.

The W9x clients open the Add Printer Wizard, connect to print$ share, 
request the ADOBEPS4.DRV file, but they stop at the beginning of the 
Permissions on print$\WINNT\0 directory are the same as print$\W32X86\2. 
cupsaddsmb was successful.

I sniffed the packets while client was in the Add Printer Wizard, and 
just looking text, the only suspicious string is: "lpr.kyocera 
noentries" (kyocera is a printer name). It appears in a LANMAN 
WPrintQGetInfo Response at the very end of the dialog.

Non idea what to do.
