[Samba] Samba 3.0 Printer Install problem

Good morning,

I am working with samba-3.0.4 and LPRng 3.8.9 on RedHat 2.4.18-14 kernel.  We are setting the server up to act as a print server for our W2K clients.  Everything seems to be working as expected except when I try to install the drivers for our Zebra 105Se barcode printers.  I am seeing log entries which I have included below.  Upon trying to install the printer it seems that the client spooler goes haywire and needs to be restarted.  The problem goes away when the printer is removed from /etc/printcap and both lprng and samba are restarted.

I know that you will need specific information to help diagnose the problem.  Please let me know what you need and if I should submit this through the bug tracking system instead.
