[Samba] problem with patch ms04-044 breaking SMB printer shares

We recently discovered after applying Microsoft Windows 2000 patch
ms04-044 to our computers we can no longer communicate with our samba
server we use for spooling printers.
- when trying to display printer queue status, we get a "Failed to open,
retrying" message across the top of the queue window
- from within various applications, trying to open a printer dialog
box using File->Print will cause the application to hang (presumably
when trying to get printer information); eventually a list of printers
will be displayed, but will then hang when the user tries to print
a job...the job never actually prints
Backing out the patch allows SMB printing via the samba server to work
properly again, but obviously the patched vulnerability still exists.
Has anyone else run up against this? Are there known fixes for this
