I use cups and have squid proxy with automatic proxy setup.
( when you start IE, you have proxy, ALWAYS ) ( no client settings needed )
I also run debian, and have none of these problems.
search in the list for "little samba setup debian"
in part 2 there is how i didt it.
and no problems with cups at all.
( i can't answhere because im on holiday tomorror )
there is also a link with my tools used.

Have you looked at your Internet Explorer proxy settings? I've found
that they can interfere with CUPS printing.
