[Samba] Samba and Cups - number of copies

You are using RAW printing.  Cups cannot tell how many pages go through
when it doesn't do anything to the job.  You are probably depending on
the driver provided by Ricoh, and using clientdriver to send directly to
the printer.  What this effectively means is that the windows client is
doing the job rendering, and sending it to the printer via cups.  At
this point, cups is just a router, not actually manipulating print jobs.
