after upgrading to Samba 3.0.3 I have the following:

I have a printershare called ibvhp750+. If I browse the network, I see that
share with exact that name.
If I doubleclick the systemfolder printers on the server, I see the same
After uploading the printerdriver to the server, I have the following :

Browsing the network down to the server, I see the share ibvhp750+.
Doubleclicking on the systemfolder
printers, I then see HP DesignJet 750C+ (E/A0) by HP. That is the name of
the printerdriver.

In the logs then  I have the following:

ERROR: string overflow by 1 (32 - 31) in safe_strcpy [\\linux\HP DesignJet
750C+ (E/A0) by HP]

This is because the printename, handled by Samba is now too long.

My system: SLES8, Samba 3.0.3 as PDC with LDAP, cups printing system used
with raw printing.

Can someone tell me what that is?

Greetings Stefan
