I just found my eror. i hope it's the same for you:

Here is my smb.conf:

      path = /var/spool/samba
      printable = yes
      printing = CUPS

      path = /srv/samba/Printer_drivers
      comment = Printer Drivers
      writeable = yes

      path = /var/spool/samba/
      browseable = yes
      printable = yes
      printer name = hpdeskjetf2200series
#printer name = "HP Deskjet F2200 series"

Note the printer name lines. I had the windows name "HP Deskjet F2200 

The clue was in the logs:
/usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd: Unable to get jobs for 
ipp://localhost/printers/HP Deskjet F2200 series - client-error-not-found

I changed to the Linux/cups printer name and print jobs got sent without
