User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
Printing from any smb client is impossible, because of a missing allow rule.
When trying to print, smbd reports the following error in syslog:

smbd: print_job_start: insufficient permissions to open spool file /var/spool/samba/smbprn.....

Adding the following rule fixes the problem:

allow smbd_t var_spool_t:dir search;

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try printing to any smb exported printer
