samba config file
We experience the same problem with samba-3.0.5-2.FC2.1 from FC2
testing. 3.0.3-5 is fine.
We've seen the same thing here on el3.
This problem is solved in samba-3.0.6-2.3E.
We have this problem still in 3.0.9-1.3E.2. We have Windows XP Pro clients
printing to samba (authentication done using domain login) which uses a CUPS
service on the same machine to do the printing.
We fixed it by downloading the SRPM for samba-3.0.9-1.3E.2, adding the following
patch to the spec file and recompiling. It would be nice if RedHat could include
this patch in their next update of the samba packages.

Fix for Printed jobs remains in windows print manager taken from bug #2220 on bugzilla.samba.org
I've tested this being applied to the latest samba SRPM for RHEL U4 and it
works for us.
As of email@example.com you may have to remove
/var/cache/samba/printing/*.tdb to empty print queues with stale
entries. I made RPM packages for actual Samba for i386 and AMD64 too:
*** Bug 145639 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
My fixed packages are working well here (see comment #7).
My fixed packages are working perfectly too. Could RedHat please make
sure they roll this fix into the next samba update.
According to the changelog, Samba from upcoming U5 (in Beta channel at this time
- samba-3.0.9-1.3E.3.src.rpm) will have the one-line patch included together
with the fix for bug #134310.
