Windows98 -to- samba print share -to- cups does not obey cups' 
AllowUser=@teachers protocol.   Where "teachers" is the primary group for the 
user.  The cups log shows - client-error-not-possible.  When we disable 
AllowUser then printing works.  Printing from Linux workstation obeys the 
AllowUser protocol - it is just win98 through samba.  We suspect cups/samba 
is not looking up primary groups only secondary groups or cups/samba is not 
looking up groups at all.

running debian etch:
    * cupsys 1.2.7-4
    * samba 3.0.24-6etch4
