As we all know, LANMAN objects (share names, user names, passwords) are transferred all upper-case and Samba deals with it. When printing from Windows 98, the CUPS job history and other CUPS code components (such as filters) show the usernames as uppercase. This creates problems with case-sensitive accounting solutions when users are also allowed to print from Linux machines.
Translate the Samba username into the UNIX username.
Is there already a flag in smbd.conf to do this?
No, feel free to submit a patch :-)
Ok. Just to know that it is not done twice.

Pong. This has not shown up in my bug list so far, so it went out my attention. Sorry.
This is probably fixed with a newer Samba version. If you still see the error. Please open a new bug with 'debug level = 10' logfiles of the new Samba version 3.5 or 3.6. Thanks!
