Twice?  or once for 'Windows 4.0' and once for "Windows NT x86'?

The Windows client is renaming the printer.  You can just
rename it again.

There's not one currently i don't think.

The is a problem in the Windows printing design.  Yes
there could be naming collisions, but most responsible
driver writers manage their namespace to avoid this.
