ok.  I finally figured out what the issue was here.  It is windows
behavior.  The printer connection will always show the printer
name.  If this connection is made using the wrong name (due to bugs in
our printing code in 3.0.6 - 3.0.7), then you might see this.
You can stop the spooler and the client (c:\WINNT\> net stop spooler)
and then remove the print connection registry keys from HKCU\printers.
Then restart the spooler and reconnect to the printer on a Samba 3.0.8
server.  Things should be ok now.

cheers, jerry
