[Samba] Printing to Samba printer causes application to abort

I am using Slackware 10.2 (kernel 2.4.29) and Samba 3.0.21c for my print
server.  The client workstations are WinNT4.  I have two printers on the
linux server..an HP DeskJet 600 and an Okidata B4250.  I can install and
print to the HP from any of the workstations.  I can install the Okidata
just fine, but when I try to print from Word, Excell, or any application Dr.
Watson comes to visit.  I get an error 'Exception: access violation
(0xc0000005),Address: 0x68603667' and the application shuts down.

I can print directly to the printers on the linux box w/o any problems.  The
file permissions are both the same for the lpd print spools and the
rpcclient shows the drivers to be added correctly and set to each printer.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
