[Samba] Slow Printing from XP clients with SP2?

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

>From an XP machine printing to a SAMBA printer, printing is painfully slow.

Selecting the printer, and even sending the job through windows makes the app
appear non-responsive. The print job is completed fine, but just takes a long time
to print.

XP boxes with SP1 print like a dream. I've managed to replicate this on 4 boxes all
with SP2.

I'm running SAMBA 3.0.4.
