No, this is a debian packaging issue.

Samba was re-linked against a new version of CUPS, because against the
old version, there is a conflict between the SSL linked for OpenLDAP,
and the SSL linked for CUPS.  (I think).  Certainly the reason for this
is that starting with CUPS enabled basically killed Samba.

This was a CUPS bug, because it was liked against OpenSSL, which I
understand is 'going away' from debian, due to the licence problems, and
a Samba bug because we were linked against the old CUPS.  

The problem is, the other package maintainers have not yet relinked
their packages, so they conflict.  

There is nothing the Samba team, nor the Samba Debian maintainers can do
about it.  Perhaps it's one of the joys of running an 'unstable'
distribution ;-)
