| Fedora 4, samba-3.0.14a-2:        Slow print from XP

This is an XP client bug.  It has been covered before in the
Samba ml archives.  You need to clean out the cached devmodes
from the HCU portion of the registry on the client machine.
Also check network traffic and I expect that you will see
a stream of GetPrinterData() requests coming from the client
looking up the value for "ChangeID"
