I recently found a tool by Cisco[1] with which you can compare and if 
necessary correct differences between printer driver installations on a 
local windows host and a remote samba host. It took me about 10 minutes 
with these tools to get our previously semi-functional Brother drivers 
working like they should.

For the printer in question (a Brother HL-4040CN) it could tell me some 61 
registry entries were missing on the samba server and it kindly corrected 
that for me.

It's too bad the tool itself is not publicly accessible.
