we also had problems with the pagecount from Samba. At least some year
ago on our printers it was more a job count.
Since those days we are using phpgcounter
(http://www.pykota.com/software/pkpgcounter) and it has been very
helpful. We run it as a cron-job every 3 mins. You'd have to preserve
your printfiles by setting "PreserveJobFiles Yes" in cupsd.conf.
So - not directly an answer to a Samba question but some experience ....
Hope that helps,
