[Samba] MS Access XP and samba print queues

We are running samba 3.0.7 with cups 1.1.20 to serve printing to WinXP 
pro SP1 clients running Microsoft Access 2002

Our users are having problems "Creating reports in design view" in MS 
Access when the default printer is a samba queue.  As soon as you change 
the default printer to a non samba queue, everything works fine. 

I've been searching the archives and it seems to be a known issue with 
no definite solution. 


Someone suggested setting "default devmode = yes" on the printers share 
in smb.conf but that didn't work for me.
Can someone please help with getting MS Access and a samba printer set 
to the default in XP to play nice?
