Description Andreas Leuner 2005-01-09 09:42:38 UTC
Hi all,     
Since samba-3.0.10 my setup of a samba connected plotter fails.     
There is a local network with an NT4 style domain with samba as PDC. The     
plotter is shared from samba, but the drivers are installed locally from the     
client machines because Point'n'click installation doesn't work for it (but     
well for other drivers).      
Up to samba-3.0.8 this setup worked well, but after a samba update to version     
3.0.10 the W2k Printer properties page fails to show up and the following error     
message appears instead:     
Funktionsadresse 0x780276af hat eine Schutzverletzung verursacht (Ausnahmecode     
Die Eigenschaftenseiten werden möglicherweise nicht angezeigt.     
which roughly translates as:     
Function address 0x780276af caused an access violation (Exception code     
Possibly the properties dialog cannot be displayed.     
Indead the properties dialog is not displayed. Neither does printing or even     
selecting this plotter in a printing dialog work - the client application     
crashes instead.  
Other printers installed at the same server continued to work fine. However 
their drivers were installed via point'n'click (i.e. provided from the server). 
I have set samba to log level 3 and attempted to access the printer dialog. The     
log output now contained a message containing the string    
"STATUS_BUFFER_OVERFLOW". I will attach that portion shortly to this report.  
Thanks for reading :-)

log output when printer dialog fails

Never mind those "No such file or directory" messages. They also appear in the
output of older samba versions when the dialog doesn't fail.

please test 3.0.11 once it is released tomorrow.  There have been 
a lot of printing fixes there.

Version 3.0.11 indeed seems to fix this bug. Thanks very much!

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
