Your subject metions memory usage, but your mail talks
about CPU usage. Which is it ?
I would check for network traffic. Look for XP clients
sending a GetPrinterData() request over and over.
The printing/*tdb files are basically cache files.
So deleteing them clears the print queu listing cache
and allows smbd to start with a fresh slate.
