[Samba] uploading client printer drivers broken ?

I am at a loss with this feature of samba in that it is soo hit or
miss if the client drivers will upload or not depending on samba
Can someone confirm that this feature does indeed work in the latest
i have tried many setups be it ldap or tdbsam, made sure all more
groupmappings are correct, folders and permissions are correct, etc,
Yet when i go to upload the printer driver the progress window
appears to be doing something, the logs show me writing to the print$
share and when it gets to the end i get a nice message stating access
To confirm that its not a permission on the filesystem it self if i
chmod 000 the path of the print$ when i try and upload the driver it
wont even attempt to upload, windows will simply state that the
operation is not possible.
I am using the root account to upload the drivers, i make sure that
im in the domain admins group(pdbedit shows primary group SID-512), i
have tried this with enable privs on and off with the root account
being a part of the printer manage privs all of which i have no success!
What makes this even more concerning is that at some sites with
previous versions of samba i was able to upload the printer drivers
with no drama what so ever however after upgrading to the latest
version when i goto upload a new driver or add a printer to the
existing network to upload a new driver the same problem occurs above.
I have tried many distros and followed the examples on samba.org,
read the instructions, the tips, the trix, everything.... This
feature has worked for me in the past and funny enough at one stage
the drivers would only upload if i was using winxp to do the
uploading on win2k networks. Now it would seem that regardless of
what i am doing this feature is broken, unless someone else from a
fresh install can shed some light on this.
Distros used : gentoo, debian, freebsd
