Sorry you're having trouble, but the Samba printing code is so
good that HP based an entire product line on it (the HP PSA).
If you're having trouble, expressing frustration like this
isn't going to help. Remember, the lists are not a paid
support forum, and (speaking for myself) I'm far more likely
as a Samba Team to take an interest in something that looks
like a bug rather than someone who has misconfigured something.
Maybe you should try purchasing support ?
