i have tried these Patches on our samba 3.0.7 (Cups 1.20, Solaris 8) 

Here some observations

The problem with the queue updated disappeard imediately
Our printserver (with netbios name printserver and IP 
shows the printers as
printername at printserver

But clients who had connected printers during the time when samba 3.0.7 
shows a name
printername at
keep this name
I am unable to remove the connections to these printers from the client 
to server as normal user.
There is an error like "no such printer on printserver",
but printing is possible to this printer !!!

I don't now, if this is just a wired W2k and XP caching behavior, or if 
there still is a problem.

I noticed, that if I connect some printers after the Patch Update,
they still connect as
printername at

But after renewing the driver on the server (cupsaddsmb)
the connection works as
printername at printserver

Thank you very much
