[Samba] Cups and Samba paper size mismatech

We have a CUPS/SAMBA installation:
Debian Sarge
CUPS 1.1.21
SAMBA 3.0.7

We have come across a strange issue with HP printers (Laserjet 5, PCL
and LaserJet 5SI, Postscript):
CUPS was setup with a default of A4 paper size. However, in SAMBA the
users see only Letter size and cannot change this option. The document
is sent to the printer as Letter, which stops printing until there is
a user intervention.

This does not seem to happen in the other printer (Phaser 350, Phaser
8400, and other printers using PCL5 and PCL6 Emulation).

Any pointers on how this can be changed?
