Description Christoph Peus 2005-02-20 04:39:00 UTC
Samba (3.0.11) seems to behave different here than a "real" Windows printer
server: using Windows you can delete as many different architecture specific
drivers as you like, even when they are associated to an existing printer - as
long as there's at least one architecture's driver left for the printer. This
concept makes perfect sense to me.
With samba it seems that all architecture's drivers are "in use" as long as they
are associated to a printer and therefore cannot be deleted as long as the
printer exists.

fix "printer driver in use" check

allow any driver to be delete when it is in use as long 
as there is one "Windows NT x86" driver left (version 2 or 3).

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