[Samba] raw.convs raw.types

I do not know if this is a debian thing or a CUPS thing... but I have
set up my printers with raw queues as stated in chapter 22 of the
Samba docs. But, I noticed that there is no mime.convs and mime.types
in my /etc/cups. Rather, there are two files named raw.convs and
raw.types. By default they hold the exact lines in them that Chapter
22 states they should have (already uncommented). I thought that
maybe they just renamed these files in this version of cups (Debian
Squeeze standard: cups-1.4.4-7).
But, every time I try to print something, Cups always says the job
completed successfully, when in fact, it disappears into thin air. No
error output anywhere, the job just disappears.
I have been looking for a few days now for info on this and I'm coming
up dry. I have posted on the Debian forums, but no one is responding.
Can anyone shed some light on these two files, and why my print jobs
disappear? I have tried this with two different known good printers
(which work with ppd filters, by the way).
I appreciate any help.
