OK, I can't say I relate to what you say (obviously), but here goes anyway.

It _was_ indeed a Windows centric problem. The solution I found was to run 
gpedit.msc (located in system32/ from the root Windows directory) and change 
the relevant parameter. For each machine.

Which reminds me that I read many times of a central "policy" available 
as "soon" as Samba 3.x, therefore NT-style domains, which can enforce such 
settings at a whole domain level (a file edited with poledit). I've never 
tried that (never needed it actually - until now, it seems).

Does it cover such stuff as the "point and print restrictions" that I editer 
with gpedit.msc?

(and no, "power user" and "domain user" weren't the subject at hand, to answer 
another private response)
