[Samba] Windows 7 Point and Print

I'm migrating from Samba 3.0.24 to 3.4.3 to add support for Windows 7 on 
my print server.  I've kept the smb.conf essentially the same, changing 
only the directives corresponding to Kerberos authentication as changed 
in the 3.4 series.  Please see http://pastebin.com/m9c0409  Note that 
the LPRng backend isn't installed on this server...I am only testing samba.

When I go to add a printer in Windows 7 (after configuring appropriate 
drivers, permissions, etc), I get an error: "Windows cannot connect to 
the printer.  Operation failed with error 0x000006f7"

The operation succeeds when I try the same procedure on Windows XP.

What setting am I missing?  Thanks for any insight you can provide.
