[Samba] Printing XP -> 3.2 Now really slow (just like the old days)

	My wife needed to print something this evening to our normal HP 4 attached to 
our cups server running samba-3.2.1-0.1.126. Nothing has changed in the last 
two months going from 3.0.28a to the 3.2.x flavor of samba. However, something 
has brought printing to its knees.

	I pulled out all the old tricks, hacked the registry to delete any entries in 
HKCU\Printers\DevModes and DevModes2 of the type \\server\printer. Removal of 
the entries didn't change a thing. I captured an ethereal/wireshark trace and I 
have that available to anyone if interested.

	Have there been any changes in 3.2.x that would effect printing? It does seem 
to print once every conceivable timer in window times out, but were talking 
120-150 seconds. Any Ideas?
