What happens if (through Windows) you run \\Samba, open "Printers and
Faxes" then view the properties of the affected printer.  On the
security tab, make sure "Manage Printers" and "Manage Documents" are
both ticked for all users in the list (especially "Everyone".)  Does
that make a difference?  You will probably need admin access to Samba
to be able to do this.
