Do you mean that you send it to Samba which in its turn sends it to CUPS 
server or that you use CUPS client to send it to CUPS server? If the 
first, try to do it without Samba involved. If it will fix your problem 
- it's some kind of Samba bug and you're on the right list. If not - it 
has nothing to do with Samba and you need to try your luck with CUPS folks.
