I had a similar problem a few month ago. I made the observation that if
windows (it was 2k at the time) has a driver preinstalled it will use
it. If the driver on the server is not the same as the preintalled one,
this can led to "binary corruption" like you see. I solve it by putting
on the server the same drivers as the preinstalled one. I found this
driver on the windows original cd in a drivers.cab file.   

>  load printers = yes

This line is of no use with cups. I would remove it but this should not
be your problem.

At this point i would stop samba, remove 
/var/lib/samba/ntdrivers.tdb and ntprinters.tdb,
restart samba and have a try with the original windows drivers.

Have a good day.
