[Samba] Samba 3.2.0 using CUPS -- Print Spooler not clearing out printed jobs

I'm running Samba 3.2.0-17.fc9 as a PDC, serving a printer using CUPS.

When I look at the state of the printer under Windows XP I see that jobs 
which have completed are still listed.

When I look in the printing/<printer>.tdb, there are all the jobs.

There is nothing left in /var/spool/samba.

There are only the completed control files in /var/spool/cups.

It appears either that Samba is not noticing that the print jobs have 
completed, or it is failing to update the printing/<printer>.tdb file... 
or something else.

Any clues where I should look ?  I tried winding up the logging level, 
but nothing obvious appeared.
