I'm using 3.0.24 with patches from http://us4.samba.org/samba/patches/.

On my XP client the print services for Unix are installed, I shared the 
local printer named 'jet' on the XP client to all users and the 
connecting user is an existing user on linux (system and samba user) and XP.

I cannot execute the dir command in smbclient for this printer:

deveis # smbclient -Utb%password //
Domain=[TB3] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
smb: \> dir

                 0 blocks of size 0. 9 blocks available
smb: \> q

Here a try with a local smb printer queue on the linux host:

deveis # smbclient -Utb%password //
Domain=[TOMMAIK] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.24-for-eisfair-3]
smb: \> dir
   .                                   D        0  Sun Feb 18 23:43:34 2007
   ..                                 DR        0  Sun Feb 18 23:20:24 2007

I mean this was functional in older samba versions...
