[Samba] Printer Problem

I have been using Samba as a print server successfully for quite some 
time.  I have one issue that I can't seem to solve.  We use a crappy 
piece of accounting software that requires the printer be set up with 
spool settings as:

   Start printing after last page is spooled.

If start printing immediately is set, the checks do not print correctly.

On a Windows computer, if I go to \\printerserver and then go inside the 
printers folder, I can set the driver and default settings for the 
printer.  I can not get the "Start printing after last page is spooled" 
setting to stick.  When I select it, close the dialog and then check the 
settings again, they go back to the default.  Is there a way to 
accomplish this?  I have tried this on just about every version of Samba 
3.x up the the latest pre release.
