[Samba] Samba 3.0.14a-2 / Cups problem

When I startup samba om my fileserver, it writes in samba.log the following
message after a minute or 2:

[2005/11/26 22:04:48, 0] printing/print_cups.c:cups_cache_reload(85)

  Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost - Connection timed out

After another minute or 3 samba continues to startup, getting ready to serve

The funny thing about it is that there is no printer connected to the
fileserver, no queues defined, just cups is there (not running). Cups can't
be undeleted by the way, too many dependencies.


My general options are:


     workgroup = HOMELAN

     server string = Fileserver

     hosts allow = 192.168.0. 127.

     log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log

     max log size = 250

     security = user

     password level = 8

     username level = 6

     encrypt passwords = yes

     smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd

     interfaces =

     domain master = yes

     preferred master = yes

     wins support = yes

     dns proxy = no

     idmap uid = 16777216-33554431

     idmap gid = 16777216-33554431

     template shell = /bin/false

     winbind use default domain = no

     printable = no

     read only = no

     browseable = yes

     public = no

     load printers = no


Is there a way to speed up the samba startup by telling it not to look to
cups? Or should I recompile samba and use -disable-cups in the config line?
