[Samba] Unable to cancel print-jobs in cups-samba combination

First of all, you might want to check the clock on your workstation 
since January 5 was five months ago.

And now, on to your problem.  Once SAMBA submits the print job to the 
CUPS printer daemon it's quite out of the picture.  There is really no 
special magic involved.  SAMBA simply executes the same "lp" command as 
you would from a shell prompt.  As far as versions, I'm just using the 
software that comes bundled with Fedora Core 4 to manage about 20 
printers across campus without any problems.  If I was having a problem 
similar to your, I would check the ACLs in the cupsd.conf file.

>Also if anybody has come accross this issue and managed to make for it I need the versions of CUPS and SAMBA used and any modifications need to be done in that.
