[Samba] Adding Printer via "Run" vs "Printers and Faxes"

I am having a problem where if I try to add a printer by simply typing 
\\server\printer in the Run dialog, I get a rather verbose error message 
ending in "Incorrect Function". If I add the printer with "Add Printer" 
in "Printers and Faxes" everything works fine.

(It looks like the same problem mentioned here: 

I am running samba 3.0.23c.
I can provide full "log level = 10" logs of both methods of adding the 
printer, my smb.conf and any other information that you might need.
