[Samba] printing is broken at reboot - HELP

I am relying on my samba PDC (3.0.1pre3 release)  for some of the
network printing jobs. There is this annoying problem : 
Following a normal -peaceful shutdown/reboot I ALWAYS have to delete my
existing printer definitions ex. xxx.tdb in the
/var/cache/samba/printing directory as they get corrupt (file size
increased as opposed to 24576 bytes normal) . That makes printing no
longer possible. After deleting and restarting the smb service
everything is back to normal. 

How can I solve this other than upgrading my samba version? 

Thank you v much,

Cristian Vladuta
