[Samba] Windows Client Print Queue does not get cleared after jobcompletion....

I am running the default version of Samba that comes with CentOS 4.4
(3.0.10-1.4E.9) and I am experiencing a problem where print jobs do not
get removed from the Windows print queue after they have been printed.

If I perform an lmstat on the Samba server I can confirm that there are
no jobs still waiting to print and hence the Samba print queues should
be empty also.

The jobs can be manually cancelled by the user after they have been
printed but this is obviously a chore.

Any advice gladly received
