[Samba] Printer drivers installation: files are not deleted

I'm running Samba 3.5.5 on Debian 5, and following the documentation as
closely as I can to install drivers using rpcclient.
I first install the driver on a Windows 7 x65 workstation, then use
rpcclient/smbclient to fetch the files.
I then use smbclient to put those on the print$ share of the Samba
server. So far, so good.
Then I use rpcclient to add those files, and that appears to work:
rpcclient -U DOMAIN\\LOGIN%PASSWD -c "adddriver \"Windows x64\" \"HP
Universal Printing PS
Printer Driver HP Universal Printing PS (v5.1) successfully installed.
But actually, things are going wrong: it does create the 3/
subdirectory, it does populate it with the files in print$/x64, but
those files are kept there, not deleted as they should.
If I then try to delete it, there's something similar:
rpcclient $> deldriverex "HP Universal Printing PS (v5.1)"
Driver HP Universal Printing PS (v5.1) and files removed for arch
[Windows x64] (version: 3).
But none of the files are really removed, they're still all there.
And so far, no error message that I can see.
Can anybody shed some light? TIA!
