The printcap cache time defines an interval in
seconds after which smbd will look for any new or
removed printers.

You have a couple of possibilities here.  You can
manually define each printer in smb.conf (and remove
[printers]) or you can seet "printcap name = /etc/printcap"
to use the cupsd generated file.  The problem is more
that the cupsd daemon appears to be quite slow when
we try to validate a large number of printer names.

Michael, Is there a better way to get cupsd to validate
a printer name or something that could be tweaked to
speed it up?  We can change the Samba code if we are
doing something wrong.  I think it is currently still close
to your original code.

cheers, jerry
