[Samba] Small bug with Samba 3.0.7's smbd process (or just a bad compilation)???

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for the explanation! I must point out though that it would be better
if the smbd process that is taking care of the lpq cache was renamed so that
it would not be confused with the other smbd process.

New feature.  The second child process is responsible for updating the lpq
cache for various printers.  Although we're still working out a few issues
with it for 3.0.8.
