I recently upgraded my print server from Samba 2.2.8a to 3.0.7 and all 
is working well except banner pages for the print jobs.  I am getting 
them now an I don't want them.

This is under Sun Solaris 9 using the stock LP spooler.  In my smb.conf 
I have had set (for years now) print commands of like the following:

   print command = lp -dnodis2  -c -o nobanner -s %s; rm %s

The print jobs are coming out okay on the correct printers, and the 
created spool file is getting deleted from /var/spool/samba as it 
should, but the "-o nobanner" option is being ignored.

 From the command line the lp command and option to suppress banner 
pages works fine  - it is only under Samba 3.0.7 that this problem has 
cropped up.

Anyone else seen this and have a solution?
