[Samba] windows printing

I have Windows XP connecting to samba/cups printers

One printer is giving me grief.

A message that recurs in the log is

"print_queue_update: failed to store MSG_PENDING flag" 

Linux printing is fine.

I can't even print onto that printer and other printers are OK

Samba Version 3.0.14a-2


Can anyone help me with this?
