i have the following problem,

im using ubuntu enterprise Server with Samba 3.0.22.

Filesharing works perfect. Since i installed a second USB-Printer (HP  
Laserjet 1022), the samba printsystem becomes unavailable.
Printing via CUPS (latest Version)

in the syslog i get these errors:

smbd[5096]:   create_policy_hnd: ERROR: too many handles (1025) on  
this pipe.
Aug  1 14:41:26 xtsrv1 smbd[5096]: [2006/08/01 14:41:26, 0]  

after restarting samba or restarting Windows XP SP2 workstation it  
works fine!.
printing from my MAC via IPP works fine too (all the time).
i cannot change from SAMBA to IPP on the Windows workstation, so i  
have to solve this problem
