[Samba] Problem uploading printer driver in Samba 3.0.14a

I recently upgraded my Samba server from 3.0.2a to 3.0.14a running on
Solaris 8.

I made the assumption that all my printer definitions would be retained
including driver information/files as long as the share containing all the
files was still there.  Although I still see the actual printers in the
list of printers, it seems that they no longer know what drivers they use.
When I attempt to upload the drivers now, it just seems to hang and doesn't
ever do anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Does anybody know what changed
between 3.0.2a and 3.0.14a that might explain why it worked before but
doesn't work now?

My smb.conf

# Global parameters
        workgroup = ENGMCAD
        netbios aliases = hydra1
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        username map = /usr/local/lib/samba/smbusers
        log file = /var/log/samba_log.%m
        logon script = logon.cmd
        logon path = \\%L\profiles\%U
        logon drive = K:
        logon home = \\%L\home
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 66
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        wins support = Yes
        ldap ssl = no
        printer admin = @ntadmins
        create mask = 0755


        path = /usr/local/samba/printers
        write list = @ntadmins, root

Permissions on the print$ share directory and all subdirectories are set at
775, owned by root and the group set to "ntadmins"
