I have figured out that if you dont apply, only the drivers are
uploadined, but they are not associated with the printer - however,
when I do hit OK or apply - the printer property window hangs (it does
however do the association) - but it also changes the name of the
printer to that of the driver in both enumprinters and
\\sambaserver\printers -- but not as what it is shared as in

Is this hanging window preventable?
