Adding that value to the registry on the samba server makes things  
work much better.  Thanks!
I didn't get a chance to try the code as my access to a dev box is  
limited right now.  I just used the registry editor to add the value  
on the remote server.

It does not give any options to change the Job Type on the Job/Log tab.

What did you look at to find that particular entry?
