Hi, i had many printing Problems as i upgraded to sernet suse samba rpms
3.04, i now use suse orginal rpms from ftp.suse.com projects samba ( 
which seems now is the valid update path )
and the problems are gone , so it looks like a compile problem to cups 
devel by sernet .. or something like this , this just for info
