The current print security checks for removing jobs is based
on matching the requesting client's user name against the
owner of the job (sort of a built in creator owner) and
then falling back to the manage documents permission in
the security descriptor.   Pausing a job requires interaction
with the underlying print system.  To you have an lppause
command defined in smb.conf?
