This is currently by design and I've not come up with a better
solution yet.  The problem is the API used to map SMB job
id's to unix job id's.  The API was originally designed
around lpd/BSD printing and so CUPS is dound by that
current limitation.

If anyone has a clean way to solve this, I'm open to ideas.
But changing the API is not a practical option at this point.
