Tracked this down using git bisect to this commit:

commit 7cd553356e3fe10bf4caac23d525df235ad9efce
Author: Andreas Schneider <anschneider>
Date:   Tue Jul 15 14:57:32 2008 +0200

    Release still reachable memory if the smbclient context is freed.

    (cherry picked from commit 88c9cf2fdc8f3d704f7f27c25ef6dc6940d451d3)

Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2008-08-12 16:05:47 UTC
Looks to me like that commit is just wrong.  With that change in, when two contexts have been created and one is freed, resources still needed by the second will also be freed.

This fix went into 3.2.2 -- is there any way we could get that into the Fedora 10 beta?

I tried samba-3.2.4-0.22.fc10.x86_64 and I am able to connect to Windows printers again.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
