For lenny:
I've found that since version 3.0.26 or so, you must reboot the system 
for printers to reappear.  It is not sufficient to simply restart Samba 
and CUPS.
Off topic, but you may also find that the web interface for CUPS fails 
when trying to add or modify a printer or export a printer to Samba.
Additionally, advanced options such as duplexing or tray selection may 
no longer work for printers using CUPS ppd drivers.
It does not seem to affect all systems.  See the bug listing for 
additional info.
