[Samba] NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND when attempting to print to a cups printer

I'm sharing a CUPS printer via samba (3.3.1) on Arch Linux to allow 
various OS'es to print. Everything used to work fine, both Windows and 
Linux clients were able to print, until now. The Linux clients (running 
CUPS) are all reporting "NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND opening remote 
spool <job name>" when attempting to print. The Windows clients cannot 
print either, but those seem a little less verbose when encountering 
printing trouble.

I've set 'log level' to 10 in my samba config, and sent a CUPS test page 
from one of the Linux clients. Is anyone able to spot anything suspicious 
in the resulting smbd.log? [1]

The only error I can spot is a bind error, however samba seems to listen 
just fine on the interface as I've specified it in my smb.conf
