Printers published in Active Directory are deleted by the pruning task running on domain controllers.

This task pings the print server each eight hours to check the printer availability and prune it from the directory if the printer is no longer available.

Commit a4157e7c5d75 removed the braces from the printer GUID in the GetPrinter info level 7 response, but MS-RPRN section 2.2 says this protocol uses curly braced string representation.

Would have preferred to avoid the double strdup, but still looks okay as-is.
