[Samba] Slow Printing with XP SP2 Clients

We have been experiencing very slow response on Windows XP SP2 clients
when doing various print related tasks (Print Properties, Print Preview,
etc.) with Samba printers. This is the same problem that has been
discussed previously on this list, as well other Linux/Samba related
groups and lists. Following the advice of one these discussions we have
found that removing the DevModePerUser and DevModes2 registry entries
for these printers solves the problem. However, the issue that we have
is that some of our users have custom default settings for their
printer(s). As soon as they go in and set default settings these
registry entries reappear and the slow response problem returns.
Has anyone else experienced a similar problem, and if so, is there any
way around this issue?
(We are currently running Samba version 3.0.11).
