What Samba version ? I made some changes to the code
that creates the default printer security descriptor
but I've not seen any issues with it.  And I don't remember
which version the change went in to.  Might have been
post 3.0.14a.

Can you run

`rpcclient samba -U adminuser%pw -c 'getprinter <printername> 3'

and send me the output?

cheers, jerry
